Paramedic training

The health care system in the region of Rojava in northern Syria has been destroyed by four years of civil war. Medical professionals have either fled or fell victim to the civil war. Since September 2014, CADUS sends medical teams into the region, primarily to support the hospital in Serekaniye.

Cooperation with Heyva Sor a Kurd

CADUS works closely with Heyva Sor a Kurd (the Kurdish Half Moon). Despite difficult circumstances due to the embargo, Heyva Sor a Kurd manages to provide free health care service. They also look after wounded wo*men fighting the IS.

The concept – modular “train the trainer” program

Upon request from Heyva Sor a Kurd, CADUS started training medical professionals in Rojava (paramedics and physiotherapists). This educational program lays the foundation for a comprehensive paramedical service in Rojava. In consideration for the participants’ ongoing workload, the course takes place in 10-day-trainings and is repeated in 6 consecutive parts.

The aim is to set up a ‘train-the-trainer’-system in the medium-term to enable Heyva Sor to provide the training themselves and make ourselves redundant as fast as possible.

CADUS also currently builds a mobile hospital in Berlin that could provide medical care to regions like Shengal where are at present no aid organisations operating.
