Each one teach one - medical trainings in Ukraine

Humanity at one of the toughest places in the world

On June 30, 2023, the time has come: CADUS will leave Camp Al Hol, where we have built up a field hospital and supported the camp's internal rescue control center, forever. But we know that the Field Hospital will be in good hands: our staff members on the ground have founded their own organization and will take over the management. It's time to look back on four challenging years in Northeast Syria, during which we have struggled a lot, but also learned a lot.
