Our trip goals:
- Medical Clinic Outreaches
- Physical and Occupational Rehabilitation Training
We need physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals, to form a medical team, as well as Arabic and Kurdish speakers to serve as translators for our medical clinics. Since the conflict began, we have sent medical teams to the region to help with the overall humanitarian and medical crisis. We will work alongside other ministries that have a long-term presence in the region. Keep in mind that we will be working, not in the conflict zones, but in refugee areas.
This region has been torn apart by civil war and religious extremist violence. In this particular country, it’s estimated that more than 500,000 people have died since 2003. More than 6 million fled their homes at the peak of the conflict in 2017. Currently, there are about 1.6 million displaced people in camps and urban areas in this area.
