Volunteer surgeons to help Iraq injured and patients with complex surgery

Following the March 12, 2015 conference (tofiq-conference.org), the Minister of Health HE Dr. ‎Adeela Hmood has kindly offered to host our volunteer surgeons who offered to go to Iraq to help ‎Iraqi surgeons with the huge bulk of injured patients and also to deal with complicated surgical ‎diseases.‎


The Ministry of Health will cover their travel and accommodation expenses with ensuring their security ‎in Iraq.‎


The first team was to depart on October 5, 2015 but was postponed because of the flare up of Cholera ‎at that time and the whole ministry was engaged in controlling the disease. We expect the next ‎departure will be mid-December, 2015.‎


There were 6 surgeons to go in October and 4 in December.‎


Below is the official letter signed by HE Minister Dr. Adeela.‎
