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.

Berlin based relief organisation CADUS e.V. is supporting the construction of a field hospital in the al-Hawl refugee camp in the northeast of Syria. Medical care is one of the most pressing issues of the camp which is hopelessly crowded with over 75.000 people. One of the main reasons for the big number of people in the camp is the collapse of the „Islamic State“ (ISIS).

The Islamic State (IS) is defeated, that´s what you can read everywhere right now. With a lot of sacrifice, the people of Iraq and Syria have managed to disempower the terrorist organization. As joyous as the news is in the face of the IS's atrocities, it should not hide the fact that the region is facing massive problems. And that the danger is not banished.
