Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation, working with the Kirkuk Health Director, provided an estimated $354,000 in needed medicine 16 July 2017. An interview conducted by NPR’s Robert Siegel with Kirkuk Governor Najmaldin Karim just days ago focused on the future of Kirkuk. The Iraqi province is facing an ISIS insurgency with thousands of displaced people.
In the last 3-4 months Iraq has not supplied Kirkuk Province with any medicine to treat those who are escaping war and have suffered under extreme circumstances for months if not years. Kirkuk’s health center is treating refugees, IDP’s and even Peshmerga forces but have lacked sufficient resources to do their job. Today, Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation hopes to provide relief for those people who have been waiting for treatment, suffering and in need of hope.
