Mobile clinics to the rescue of refugees

Mobile clinics to the rescue of refugees

The Kurdish-Turkish conflict is exacerbated. The influx of refugees fleeing Syria to Iraqi Kurdistan is certain. The lives of almost 2 million people are at risk. The Polish Medical Mission works on site, operating mobile clinics in refugee camps and the production of prostheses inside Syria.

Since Wednesday, Turkish troops have been conducting an operation, as a result of President Erdogan’s wants to oust Kurds and resettle Syrians to the so-called security zone on the Turkish-Syrian border (area reaching 30 km deep into Syria).

"The same situation is repeated again. People flee their homeland before the war. Many people will lose their homes, many will lose their lives. First of all, our mission is to provide civilian medical support. They suffer the most during the conflict. " - says Małgorzata Olasińska-Chart from the Polish Medical Mission.

At the moment, the Kurds from Syria are terrified, walking the road in cars full of valuable objects and on foot, day and night. PMM is ready to help. Our mobile clinic works constantly in the Erbil region. Last year, we helped 11 365 patients. There will be many more in the near future.

We can expect an influx of up to 250,000 refugees in the near future. The Kurdistan Regional Government plans to build three camps - one in each of the provinces of Erbil, Duhok, and Suleimanija. It is estimated that around 20% of refugees will not use the camps when living with families or relatives. Everyone else will depend on humanitarian aid.

We call for support for supplying the medical team with necessary medicines and medical materials. We have been conducting aid operations in Iraqi Kurdistan and Syria since 2016. We supply 2 mobile clinics and 2 dental offices there.
