The goal of this Programme is to support the Lebanese Red Cross Society by contributing the temporary Emergency Medical Services station in Wadi Khaled, in order to facilitate the first aid to and the transportation of the wounded from the Syrian-Lebanese border area to Lebanese hospitals. Most of the Syrian refugees entered Lebanon through border crossings in the area of Wadi Khaled. For that reason LRCS decided to establish in 2011 a temporary EMS station in Wadi Khaled. This station had been supported by NLRC since March 2012. EMS station is in Wadi Khaled, Lebanon.
This project realises a EMS station in Wadi Khaled, equipped with two ambulances and opened day and night. The main reasons for assistance are pregnancy related issues, wounded, accidents and infectious diseases. The ambulances are in constant need of maintenance due to the high number of trips per shift and the bad road conditions.
Benificiaries of this project are Syrian patients and those of neighbouring communities of the Wadi Khaled region.
