MOH sends a private plane for a child’s hospital appointment

He requested for a movement permit

Al Hassan Ali Khabrani contacted the Saudi Ministry of heath in the Asir region to inquire about the procedure to get a permit for taking his daughter to Riyadh for her prescheduled appointment at the hospital.

The girl who is named Ibtihal was suffering from some health issues like atrophy and her treatment was being carried out at one of the hospitals in Riyadh.

The current ongoing situation and the spread of COVID-19 worried Ali Khabrani. The internal flights were suspended and intercity travel is banned.

Al Khabrani thanked the Government

Al Khabrani was so pleased with the benevolence of the health Ministry that he had no words to thank them. He said I don’t know how to thank the Ministry of health.

The ministry proved helpful at the time when they were looking for some help. The girl's appointment with the doctor was an urgent one because she got operated last month.
