UAE’s Burjeel Holdings and RPM Launch Initiative to Care for Injured Children from Gaza with support from Egypt’s Cleopatra Hospitals Group



  • The leading healthcare providers in the UAE and Egypt have joined forces to extend emergency care for pediatric patients and facilitate their transfer to hospitals in Cairo and the UAE for advanced and complex medical support
  • The entities are exploring the possibility of setting up a field hospital for onsite emergency care and definitive treatments for pediatric patients, upon obtaining relevant approvals

Burjeel Holdings and Response Plus Holding (RPM) with support from Egypt’s Cleopatra Hospitals Group are collaborating to offer emergency and complex medical support to severely injured children transferred from Gaza. Entities are in talks with relevant authorities and the operations will commence upon obtaining approvals. Efforts are also underway by RPM to establish a field hospital, with up to 60 beds, at the Rafah border crossing to offer onsite emergency care, damage control procedures, and definitive treatments for pediatric patients.

Burjeel Holdings and RPM will facilitate the transportation of the children requiring secondary and tertiary care to hospitals in Cairo and Abu Dhabi, ensuring they receive the highest standard of care. Patients with advanced medical needs will be transported to Cairo. Meanwhile, those requiring comprehensive, high-end care for complex conditions, including orthopedic issues, pediatric and neonatal intensive care (PICU/NICU), surgical interventions, and plastic and reconstructive surgeries, will be admitted to Abu Dhabi’s Burjeel Medical City, the largest private quaternary care hospital in the country with over 400 beds under the Burjeel Holdings umbrella. Additionally, counseling services will be provided to children and their families to support their mental health during this challenging time.

A specialized joint action committee comprising medical experts has been convened to spearhead and fast-track the project. Burjeel Holdings, one of the largest healthcare providers in the MENA region, and RPM, the UAE’s largest onsite healthcare and emergency medical services provider, have successfully collaborated with various governments to execute life-saving evacuation and medical missions in Yemen, Turkey, Syria, and provide emergency support to victims of crises and calamities. As Egypt’s leading private healthcare provider, Cleopatra Hospital’s pediatric department has a wealth of experience in providing immediate and advanced care to children in Greater Cairo, while Burjeel Medical City is fully equipped with pediatric subspecialties, capable of addressing severe injuries and facilitating long-term recovery and rehabilitation.

Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, Founder and Chairman of Burjeel Holdings and Chairman of RPM, commented, “Our collaboration with Cleopatra Hospitals Group is a testament to our shared commitment to serving communities in need. Cleopatra Hospital’s strategic location, coupled with its medical expertise, and our rich experience in managing similar projects, collectively ensures that the children will receive unparalleled care.”

Ahmed Badreldin, Chairman of Cleopatra Hospitals Group, said, “This timely collaboration is a reflection of the shared commitment between Burjeel Holdings and Cleopatra Hospitals Group to uphold our social responsibilities and deliver leading pediatric care to children in need. This initiative is an exemplary demonstration of the power of partnership in tackling critical healthcare challenges.”

Burjeel Holdings and RPM signed an MoU with Cleopatra Hospitals Group on Saturday. The collaboration agreement was formalized in Cairo in the presence of Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, Dr Ahmed Ezzeldin, CEO of Cleopatra Hospitals Group, Dr. Rohil Raghavan, CEO of RPM and other senior officials.
