Finding a Path
It is not an easy task to reach those most in need, medicine is so important when treating people in war zones and constant areas of conflict.
Medicine Always in Short Supply
Rizgary Hospital located in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan is one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the city. Treating more than 800 patients per day, Rizgary Hospital has seen a constant increase in volume from years of turmoil within the region.
DAMA & BHHF
In our on-going collaboration with DAMA (Doctors Aid Medical Activities) Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation provided another 18 cartons of medicines to help meet their growing demand
Special Care Director Receives Aid
Joyful news is spreading about Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation’s ability to access needed supplies for vulnerable groups. In the last month Bring Hope has developed numerous new cooperation contacts with highly visible and in-need organizations who have requested our help.
Cooperation and Compassion
Heevi Organization and Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation have been cooperating with each other for quite some time. This cooperation is a direct result of Bring Hope’s efforts to ensure hospitals and other health organization have the tools needed for them to keep people healthy. Medication is a scarce commodity.
Economic constraints greatly affect the lives of people, but those in need of medical help have an even greater challenge when hospitals do not have adequate resources to care for those in need.
Doctors Aid Medical Activities
Doctors Aid Medical Activities or DAMA offers medical and health services to people in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, these include the refugee camps and internally displaced persons.
The Road Less Traveled
S. Barkley represents the NGO Free Burma Rangers (a/k/a Free Kurdish Rangers) and today he is loading 70 boxes of medications from Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation for use in Sinjar. He tells Bring Hope, “…[some] NGO’s can’t operate do to the political climate…constraints of insurance or security.”
Continuing Support to Rwanduz Hospital
In our continuing effort to provide on-going assistance to regional and local hospitals in Iraqi Kurdistan we delivered 57 cartons of medications valued at approximately $95,000 to Rwanduz Hospital.
Barzan and Mergasor Community Support
It is early December and the medical director’s from Barzan and Mergasor Districts have come to the climate controlled warehouse of Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation to gather much needed medicines for their communities.
29 October 2017 Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation (BHHF) receives a load of new medications from the Netherlands. This load was about 180 kilos and cost approximately 1,120 Euros.
Donations with High Impact
All donations are crucial for someone’s well-being, but certain donations are crucial for survival. Zhian Health Organization received $114,000 of medical supplies and medicines today (10 October 2017).
Heevi Organization Receives $93,000 in Medication
26 cartons of medication were distributed to Heevi Organization 10 October 2017 by Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation. Originating from the UK and Switzerland these donated medicines have been shipped to Bring Hope so organizations such as Heevi can receive them on-the-ground through distribution channels established by Bring Hope
Another Successful Cooperation
WAHA (Women and Health Alliance International) and Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation are cooperating today, 10 October 2017, to bring medical items and medication (received originally as a donation from the UK and Switzerland) to the people who are sick and in need of medical attention and medication to heal.

Khansa Hospital in Mosul Receives Truckloads of Aid

JHK and Bring Hope Cooperating
Medicines and medical equipment is being loaded to help the 6000 IDP’s residing in Bajid Kandal 2 Refugee Camp. This load of humanitarian aid is because of a joint effort with JHK (Joint Help for Kurdistan) a Swedish NGO.
Filling a “BIG GAP”
Hevi is a national NGO that for the last 3 years has focused their efforts on serving IDP’s and refugees within their host communities (those communities that offered protection from the war and ISIS) by providing medical and health support in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.
“FAI and Bring Hope Are at it Again”
It is always a pleasure when two humanitarian agencies work well together, this is especially true when new doors are opened and many new people, in desperate straits, are the recipients of the donations.
Sulaymaniyah International Airport
Community involvement is a key ingredient for any NGO. Becoming a partner and “go to” organization when there is a crisis or when resources aren’t enough to meet demand by those whose job it is to provide for the population it serves is of utmost importance to Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation.
Ranya District is located in Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Iraqi Kurdistan. The population is approximately 200,000 and includes three towns, Çiwarqurne, Bêtwate and Hacî awa, and is the centre of the Bîtwên and Raperîn area.
When people suffer from health conditions that go untreated because medication is unavailable, society also suffers. People cannot be good, productive citizens when they are ill. To create a system where society steps up to answer the needs of its citizens, collaboration without expectation is most certainly necessary.
