QRCS, Aspetar sign pact to support global humanitarian work

By QLNews

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) and Aspetar, the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish mutual cooperation in supporting humanitarian activities related to the provision of health care for vulnerable individuals and communities.

At the Aspetar premises, the MoU was signed by Eng. Ibrahim Abdullah Al-Maliki, Chief Executive Director of QRCS, and Dr. Abdul-Aziz Jaham AL-Kuwari, Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Aspetar.

Under the three-year instrument, the two parties have agreed to work together based on mutual trust, cooperation, and partnership to obtain the best possible outcome for the intended beneficiaries.

In order to do so, they will implement joint humanitarian projects in Qatar or other countries, in consistency with the regulations and requirements of both parties, involved countries, special circumstances of projects, and mechanisms of implementation stated in project MoUs (if needed).

The services involved under this MoU include bringing international poor patients by QRCS for treatment at Aspetar.

The hospital will support QRCS’s medical convoys program, by allowing its specialized physicians to travel on charitable medical missions abroad. Also, it will donate medical drugs and consumables to be used by QRCS’s clinics or as medical aid to vulnerable communities.

“This MoU is a new legal framework of cooperation between QRCS and Aspetar. For many years now, we have been working collaboratively on the medical coverage of sports matches and events supervised by Aspetar in Qatar. This time, the scope of work expands to QRCS’s foreign medical operations, such as medical aid and surgical delegations to treat poor patients” Eng. Al-Maliki said.

'' This agreement goes in line with QRCS’s strategic approach to government, NGO, and private partnerships. It also reflects Aspetar’s belief in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and humanitarian action.'' Eng. Al-Maliki added.

Dr. Al-Kuwari commented, “This agreement builds on our good relations with QRCS for over a decade, opening up new horizons for bilateral strategic cooperation. We applaud the leading role of QRCS in supporting the various areas of humanitarian and relief work”.

“Aspetar will spare no effort to contribute its world-class health care and research expertise towards such a noble cause, cherishing the hospital’s underlying values of supporting humanitarian action locally and globally” Dr. Al-Kuwari concluded.
