Refugee Health Centers in Crisis
Ibrahim Khaled an official of the Baharka Refugee Camp Health Center reports treating 80-150 sick people every day which he estimates totals between 2800-3000 people in a month. As one of the largest refugee camps in Iraqi Kurdistan, Erbil Governorate, he does not receive enough resources, especially medicines, to treat all the patients they serve. As such, Ibrahim asked Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation for help. On 20 February 2018, Bring Hope supplied 16 cartons of medicines so they can continue treating their patients.
Baharka camp houses thousands of displaced people from Mosul and Palestine. The camp and its health center are under severe stress as they are underfunded and limited in resources which adversely affects people’s lives. Bring Hope will continue to support the camp as much as possible. To be part of the solution, see bringhope.info.
