Pomoc medyczna

Despite the fact that medical support is not our specialization, we frequently help in this field as well.

We often provide financing for medical procedures or surgeries to people in exceptionally difficult financial situation. We are not able to help every time when medical intervention is required, but we do take action in special cases.

The first person to receive medical help from us was Quassim – a boy living in an IDP camp in Khanke.

He was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s disease which causes a life-threatening intestinal obstruction. The boy underwent stoma surgery and lived with a stoma for a year and a half in difficult camp conditions, lying on a mattress placed on the floor, often during very hot weather with temperatures exceeding 50 degrees Celsius. He is still recovering after several surgeries and a long therapy.

We have also co-financed a surgery of 37-year-old Khoke, a widowed mother of eleven children.

Khoke got a serious spinal cord injury during the escape from the besieged by terrorists Mount Sinjar. Because of the injury, she was neither able to function normally nor fulfill simple, everyday tasks. What makes this story particularly tragic is that her husband was murdered, and she was pregnant when fleeing Sinjar. Luckily her newborn was healthy. After the death of her husband her oldest son became the family’s sole breadwinner and caregiver. Khone’s spine surgery was successful. Our assistance to the family included supporting the opening of a little photocopy shop for Khoke’s son, which enables him to provide for the family.

We also helped Bakhtiar – the soldier who stopped a terrorist driving a van full of explosives.

The thug was going to blow himself up nearby an apartment building in Kirkuk. Bakhtiar’s heroism was paid for with severe injuries. We managed to bring him to Poland, where he underwent surgery under great medical supervision.

There is no free medical care in Iraq, therefore for the poorest it is practically unavailable.

We have been trying to the best of our possibility to help finance medical care of terrorism victims, who are already in a very difficult situation. There have been many stories such as the ones described here and oftentimes help or a lack thereof is a matter of life and death.
