Our New Health Clinic in the Qoratu IDP Camp


In the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq, thousands of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) are searching for a safe place to be sheltered from the fighting that’s enveloped the area. To serve the immediate health needs of this growing population, EMERGENCY operates two health clinics in the Arbat camp and a mobile clinic that serves refugees around Salah-Aga.

Now we are getting ready to open our newest health clinic [pictured] in the newly EMERGENCY-NGO-IRAQ-QORATU-IDP-CAMP-CLINICestablished Qoratu IDP camp near Kalar. Another clinic will be opened in Tazade in the same area.

Even while responding to emergency health crises, we are mindful of creating spaces of refuge. “It was sort of a wager,” says Raul, architect, “whether we could build a human-centered building using the standard prefabricated modules. And the compliments we’ve already received about the care we put in the buildings tells us we’re hitting the mark. High quality healthcare in high quality facilities: that’s the idea we believe in.”

To help deliver free, high standard care to refugees in Iraq and people affected by conflict all around the world, click here to donate now.
