MSF - Rebuilding Lives Shattered by War

Emergency trauma surgery is the beginning rather than the end of a long journey to recovery for those injured in Mosul. As such, MSF is running a 40 bed hospital in Hamdaniya, a town south of Mosul, to specifically cater for the needs of those recovering from surgery and attempting to rebuild their lives. This clinic is the only facility of its kind in the entire Nineveh province of Iraq and is currently running at full capacity having treated 120 patients since it opened in March. Inside patients receive regular dressing changes to help prevent post-operative infection and receive physiotherapy and psychological care in conjunction with a team from Handicap international. Many patients will require further operations before they can return to their families.
