Mount Sinjar Mobile Medical Clinic

Our mobile medical clinic provides free health care to remote areas in Sinjar Mountain. The local people in these areas are either displaced, or returnees trying to rebuild their homes and lives, and do not have access to medical care.
 
The mission of the Yazda mobile clinic is to address the need for accessible, cost-effective primary health care by bringing the doctor to the people. Our ability to deliver services directly into mountain villages difficult to access helps us respond to the needs of people who may otherwise have been left undiagnosed and untreated. Further, because we are Yazidi and understand our patient’s hardships firsthand, our clinic can serve those who would otherwise be too fearful or embarrassed to seek medical help elsewhere.
 
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 about 35 locations on the north side of Sinjar Mountain. Yazda is grateful for the powerful collaboration of like-minded individuals who have aligned with us to ensure that health care for the people of Mount Sinjar is available. We are especially appreciative to the Central Council of Yazidis in Germany who provided us our mobile clinic vehicle.
 
Nearly $2,700, or a little over half of our monthly operating budget, has been kindly donated to cover year one. We are hopeful that other donors will partner with us to ensure the continuation of our mobile medical services, amounting to $4,200 per month. These primary expenses include clinic facilities, medical equipment and supplies, as well as clinic worker salaries. Moreover, while The Department of Health has generously provided Yazda with several medicines, high-demand medicine that runs out must be paid for through our own budget.
