A few weeks ago, we announced our intention to work on Lesvos as part of our Emergency Response Balkans. After our team had observed the situation on the ground for a few days, it became clear that as an organization we could not imagine working in the local conditions. The reasons for this decision can be found in our statement below.
On Thursday, May 24th, CADUS and the Kurdish Red Crescent joined together for the first training of the mobile hospital. About 15 Kurdish Red Crescent crew members joined the CADUS project coordinators, infield head of mission, and technician to learn about the operation of the mobile hospital which will soon be utilized in the field.
On April 10th, we were happy to present the Al-Khansaa children’s and women’s hospital at East Mosul with a donation from FujiFilm SonoSite. The company contributed one of the latest mobile ultrasound devices available on the market. Our volunteer physician, Dr. Henryk Pich (anaesthesiologist, emergency and intensive care physician) was on site for the handover.
Our technician, Chris has arrived in Erbil to inspect the trucks prior to their departure to Syria. Due to the fact that they haven't been moved for a long time, there are a few items needing to be repaired and serviced. The next step is to get all of the necessary permissions for the passage to syria. If everything's going smoothly, we can start this month or the beginning of April at the latest.
