    Background: INTRODUCTION: While troops from Ireland, the Netherlands and Scandinavia are serving - along with the nationals of several other states - with the United Nations force in Lebanon, doctors and nurses from these countries are also helping the Palestinian refugees in a Lebanese camp near Tyre.

    SYNOPSIS: The camp is at Rashidiyeh, in south Lebanon, not far from the Israeli border, and is run by the Palestine Liberation Organisation. About 20,000 refugees of all ages live there. Mothers with children and the old people, particularly welcome the skilled medical attention which these volunteers are able to give them.

    These doctors and nurses are in a less obviously exposed position than their compatriots in UNIFIL - the United Nations force stationed in the South Lebanon to keep the peace. UNIFIL men have come under attack from both the Palestinians and the Christian militia on the Israeli border. But their camp still gets caught up from time to time in the conflict. Rashidiyeh has been shelled many times by the Israelis, who believe that it is a recruiting ground for Palestinian commandos. The medical teams are not concerned with the tangled politics of Lebanon and the Palestinians. They have gone there to bring skilled help where it is badly needed.
