Emergency medical care in al-Hawl refugee camp

From now on CADUS supports the establishment of a field hospital in the al-Hawl camp in northeastern Syria. Together with our local partner organization we equip the hospital, train medical staff and will finally take over the operation completely.
This will significantly improve the acute and long-term medical care situation.

Medics for field hospital wanted!

We are urgently looking for medical staff for our field hospital at the al-Hawl camp.

The reconquest of the Iraqi city of Mosul and thus our medical mission in the west of the city came to an end just over two years ago. Since then, little can be heard from the second largest metropolis of Iraq. Reason enough for us to take a look at the current situation. Where does the city stand with its inhabitants today, what are the conditions and where do perspectives develop?
