Adjust font size:

Thailand's government has prepared three medical teams, which will be dispatched to help quake hit Haiti on Monday, February 8.

Thailand on January 29 sent four senior Thai doctors to Haiti to survey if it is safe for the three medical teams to fly to relieve Haitians, the public health ministry's website quoted Public Health Minister Jurin Laksanavisit as saying Monday.

Hence, prior to leaving for Haiti, the public health ministry will also consult with the Thai Foreign Ministry concerning the security matter, Jurin said.

The planned medical teams are Thailand's latest move after the government Monday started delivering 100 tons of Thai rice to Haiti.

The Thai government has totally donated some 20,000 tons of Thai rice for Haiti. The first lot of the 100 tons of rice was delivered to Hiati by Thai Airways International.
