Volunteering


Urgently and immediately, we are looking for medical staff for our field hospital in Northeast Syria!

In consequence of the disastrous circumstances and the lack of sufficient medical care in the refugee camp al-Hawl in Northeast Syria (NES), we started setting up a field hospital at very short notice.

Klick here for more Infos about the project!

Meanwhile there are over 70 000 people living in Al Howl. They are without access to medical treatment in the camp, the referral system is not sufficient and the hospitals in the surroundings are overcrowded. Until now there was no camp hospital established.
The hospital that CADUS is setting up at the moment together with the local health care providers will consist in 40 beds, out of them 10 with monitors, an operation theater
in which minor surgeries are performed, an isolation area and an area for acute emergencies that arrive by ambulance. The idea is to relieve the burden on the surrounding hospitals and offer short-term acute care on site, as well as basic diagnostics (X-ray, ultrasound, laboratory).

Our medical team will be composed of a nurse, a surgeon, an anaesthesiologist and an internist or family or general doctor preferably with skills in emergency medicine and obstetrics. They will work alongside our local medical team and besides taking care of the patients and operating they will perform medical trainings and improve the triage and referral system.

You can find further information about the situation in al-Hawl in the actual UN-Report.

We are looking for medics to join us on a mission (remunerated) for 6-12 weeks:

  • starting the 1st of July: a surgeon (f/m/*), an anaesthetist (f/m/*), an specialist in internal/emergency/general medicine (f/m/*) with several years of working experience preferably with experience in working abroad
