Yazda Mobile Medical Clinic Provides Free Medical & health care to 14 remote villages in Sinjar

Since 10.02.2016, Yazda operates a Mobile Medical Clinic which provides free medical and health care to 14 remote villages in Sinjar Mountain; 1300-1800 patients per month. This project is currently funded by Stichting Vluchteling

The main goal of this project is to continue to improve access to quality health services and medicines to the communities based in remote villages north of Sinjar Mountain which include Adeeka, Tairaf, Aldeenah, Kharbah, Qane, Bayeev, Naqsay, Bakrah, Kormale, Zerwa, Bakhilif, Shorka, Gurmiz and Karse.

The communities based in those villages often have limited access to healthcare due to their physical location or financial background. The villages are located in mountainous areas on the slope of Mount of Sinjar and off the main road, which means the only access is through unpaved muddy roads. During snowfall in winter and with heavy floods in spring, the access is constrained even more. Majority of the population in the targeted villages are poor farmers and shepherds who rarely leave their home villages.
