BETHLEHEM- (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian medical team arrived to the destroyed city of Portoviejo last week to help treat the victims of a deadly earthquake that hit Ecuador on April 16.

The team provided medical treatment, including surgeries, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a statement Monday.

Palestinian ambassador to Ecuador Hani al-Remawi, alongside a Palestinian delegation, met with Ecuador’s Minister of Public Health Margarita Guevara on Sunday.

On behalf of President of Ecuador Rafael Correa, Guevara expressed appreciation for the Palestinian medical team, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and Palestinian Minister of Health Jawad Awwad for the quick response in sending the medical team to help the Ecuadorean earthquake victims.

The Palestinian delegation consisted of a medical team of 15 doctors and surgeons and a media team. The delegation was sent by Abbas following coordination between the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Palestinian Ministry of Health and their Ecuadorian counterparts.
