BEIRUT, April 11 (ChinaMil) -- The medical contingent of the 17th Chinese peacekeeping force to Lebanon implemented emergency treatment for a Syrian refugee on April 9, local time, Beirut, capital of Lebanon.
Bitten by a wolf, the refugee suffered almost complete avulsion injury. He went to the Chinese hospital in Lebanon for help, because Chinese peacekeeping medical personnel enjoyed a good reputation of high medical standards and excellent service attitude locally. The Chinese medical personnel skillfully dressed the wounds and gave him a rabies vaccine, for which the patient expressed heartfelt thanks.
The medical contingent is stationed at the Lebanon-Israel border, where people live in a rough harsh environment and poor medical conditions, with multiple refugee camps scattering around. Most residents living there are impoverished.
Since its deployment in May 2018, the medical contingent of the 17th Chinese peacekeeping force to Lebanon has gone deep into local villages and schools to offer physical examinations, diagnosis and treatment services to the people, teachers and students living in the vicinity.
They have provided humanitarian assistance for 419 persons, donated nearly 50,000-yuanworth of relief supplies, including medicine, first-aid kits, stationery, etc. Lebanon News Agency has published many reports to express the gratitude of the fortunate local people to have Chinese military personnel taking care of their health.
