“This is my first time spend Eid al-Adha in other country. But this is my second time to come to the hospital for treatment. I thought I would celebrate it in the ward with my family, I never thought the hospital will prepare this festival so grand. The enthusiasms of medical staffs make me feel very warm.” At the scene, patient Ashm from Bahrain said cheerfully, “in the next year’s Eid al-Adha, I will invite Chinese doctor friends to Bahrain. I will hold a grand welcome for you.”
Rahman from Oman expressed that he first touched Chinese medicine was in a hospital of Muscat. On 17th August, he consulted his health condition to the Chinese medicine follow-up team. After he knew Traditional Chinese Medicines were helpful for his illness condition, he came to shijiazhuang after just ten days of preparation. “I am lucky to meet the annual festival—Eid al-Adha. When I and my families are helpless to my disease, I met Chinese doctor friends, and I spend an unforgettable festival here. I will share the holiday blessing with Oman’s families.” Rahman sincerely said.
Then, foreign patients from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, etc, shared their own feelings one after another. The warm atmosphere is as a big family gathering. The medical staffs wish all people recover as early as possible.
“It has become a habit to make patients from abroad feel the warmth at home. During major domestic and international festivals, we will spend time with patients,” the director of International Department, Liu Pan said, “this worship activity of Eid al-Adha also attracts non-Muslim foreign patients to join. In the hospitalized patients, some of them consulted our renal experts during the follow-up activity abroad.”
It is said that as the “One Belt and Road” activity has created good international environment for Chinese medicine going out, people in the countries along the belt and road have more and more trust for Chinese Medicines. In this big background, we will actively practice the strategy of going out and spread Chinese medicine culture to abroad. Up to now, the follow-up medical team of the hospital has gone to Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Russia, Pakistan, Singapore, Philippines, Bangladesh, Kenya, Malaysia and other countries to hold Chinese medicine follow-up activities about 20 times, which have achieved good response.
