We have been fairly quiet since the “Mobile Hospital” left for northern Iraq even though a lot has happened. But the most important news is that we have successfully arrived.

And suddenly, the mission was over before it even started. Four members of our team had been on the way to Erbil on 15th of March to deliver urgently needed medical support with our “Mobile Hospital” to the people in northern Iraq. They were traveling, via Istanbul, to Erbil but the journey ended prematurely at the Turkish airport. They were detained and kept in custody for about 16 hours.
