Indian medical team serves in Kuchchaveli

[TamilNet, Friday, 14 January 2005, 17:06 GMT]
Five-member team of the Medicines Sans Frontier (MSF) of France left Trincomalee Friday when a fifty member medical team of the Indian Navy took charge of the Kuchchaveli government hospital located about thirty km north of east Trincomalee to serve the people of the area affected by Tsunami disaster, health authority sources said.

MSF medical team started its service in Kuchchaveli soon after Tsunami disaster when hundreds of people were left without proper medical attention, sources said.

A fifty member medical team comprising Indian doctors, nurses and other workers who arrived in Trincomalee harbour in an Indian Navy vessel with adequate medicines and medical equipments, was sent to Kuchchaveli hospital.

Indian volunteers cleared the debris surrounding the hospital and cleaned the wells in the area and started providing assistance to the affected people, sources said.

MSF team worked with the Indian medical team before leaving to work in Batticaloa, health authority sources said.
