IRCS launches Neurology Clinic

TEHRAN, 07 September 2021 (IRCS) – With support of its volunteers and donors, the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) opened a Neurology Clinic in Tehran on Tuesday, September 7.

Red Crescent’s volunteers spent more than USD 619,000 (more than Rls. 26 billion) to set up the clinic, according to the IRCS.

The center has been located in the place of the IRCS’ Health, Treatment, and Rehabilitation Division.  

“In the past two years, the Health, Treatment and Rehabilitation Division has made every effort to expand the services to compatriots throughout the country,” said Dr Hemmati, IRCS President in opening ceremony of the center. “In Kerman, Ilam and Sistan and Baluchestan, those who receive Red Crescent’s services are needy people and the Society’s rehabilitation centers have expanded nationwide.”

Praising the IRCS’ volunteers and donors, Mr Hemmati said: “At the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, we sent one million masks to China, and today we welcome Afghans across the border. It is the capacity of our people to serve and receive immigrants and refugees and to help their fellow human beings when needed.”

Iranian Red Crescent rendered health, treatment and rehabilitation services to patients in Iran and abroad. The Society has one hospital named Noor Afshar in Tehran and many rehabilitation centers across the country. Iranian Red Crescent’s health centers render humanitarian services in 13 countries of Asia, Africa and South America.

In 2018, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) accepted the Iranian Red Crescent qualifications to join IFRC’s Emergency Response Unit (ERU) Search Capacity to participate in the IFRC International Disaster Response Program.
