A Response to Humanitarian Challenges: Addressing Sudanese Refugee Crisis

The UAE Field Hospital in Chad is a response to the humanitarian challenges posed by the conflict outbreak in Sudan in April. Its primary mission is to alleviate the suffering of Sudanese refugees and mitigate the humanitarian impact of their influx into Chad.

Comprehensive Medical Services: Serving Those in Need by Chad Hospital

Since its inauguration, the hospital has touched the lives of thousands of Sudanese refugees, earning a strong reputation in the local community. It operates 24/7 with an integrated medical staff and modern equipment, conducting over 47 major and minor surgeries.
