With the refugee crisis and internally displaced people at an all-time high, the hospitals within Iraqi Kurdistan stand bravely to continue providing medical treatment to patients in need of their services. Unfortunately, without any government support forthcoming and none expected within the foreseeable future, hospitals such as Rwanduz question their ability to continue providing services. Feeling the pressure of 200-300 sick who present on a daily basis for help and even more at the centers around the Rawanduz boundaries such as, Bekhal, Jondyan, Khanaqa, Akoyan, and Darkala as well as providing services for the Shankal Refugees, they sought the help, once again, from Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation. In spite of the severe shortage of medicines within Iraq, Bring Hope has managed to continue sourcing pharmaceuticals from outside the country to ensure the acute and chronic illnesses affecting people within Kurdistan can be treated. On 13 February 2018, 35 cartons of medicines were delivered to Rwanduz Hospital for their use at all the centers they supply. To be part of this amazing journey, see bringhope.info.
