Mobile Medical Support and Informal Education in Sinjar for ISIS victims (Irak and Syria)

Iraq Sinjar, Iraq
Number of people taking this action: 50-250
People from the Sinjar region in Iraq suffered greatly as they escaped from ISIS with their families, were sieged on Mount Sinjar for days without food and water and withstanding harsh climate, witnessed their family members being kidnapped or killed, and were displaced in IDP Camps.    Yazda’s Mobile Medical Unit provides basic health services to 35 villages in the Sinjar area where other medical facilities are not easily accessible. It assists around 2,000 patients every month and offers emergency transport to larger hospitals when needed. Additionaly, Yazda conducts informal education projects for children with focus on literacy and English language. The program allows Yazda staff to assess cases of vulnerable children with emotional issues and address them through one to one follow-up and re-socialising activities.
