Health Projects

Currently Yazda operates a mobile medical clinics provide free health care to remote areas in Sinjar Mountain in partnership with Stichting Vluchteling. 

 

The mission of the Yazda mobile clinic is to address the need for accessible, cost-effective primary health care by bringing the doctor/medical staff to the people. Our ability to deliver services directly to mountain villages difficult to access helps us respond to the needs of people who may otherwise have been left undiagnosed and untreated.

 

The mobile clinic provides full-time, 5 days a week, medical coverage. Since our inception, we have been serving more than 2,100 patients per month in multiple locations on the north side of Sinjar Mountain. 

 

In 2018, Yazda delivered 8 trucks of donated medical supplies to the hospitals in northern Iraq. 

 

Previous Initiatives 

  1. Mobile Clinic in Sinjar

    • This Mobile Clinic project was founded by Tent Foundation during 2016. From our Snoni/Sinjar office, a Mobile Medical Unit was deployed to provide basic health to 35 villages. Staffed by a medic and a nurse/ pharmacist, it assisted close to 2,000 patients per month, in areas where no other medical service is available. Equipped with an IT database, it keeps track of each patient through the multiple visits. It can count on medicines provided in part by the government and in part by private donors. The service also offers emergency transport to larger local hospitals when needed.
