World Help Mobile Health Clinic

IRAQ - In an area of the Middle-East that has seen so much destruction and misery lately, Iraq's first-ever mobile medical clinic is providing desperately needed assistance to refugees. It is an outreach project of World Help, a "faith-based humanitarian organization that exists to serve the physical and spiritual needs of people in impoverished communities around the world." World Help's Iraq Mobile Medical Clinic can serve as many as 100 people in just a few hours providing basic medications and treatment for free to individuals and families. The clinic is staffed by qualified professionals including a general practitioner, dentist, gynecologist, pharmacist, and a lab worker. Without the Mobile Health Unit, refugees have to travel long distances to reach the nearest clinic, often not properly staffed or maintained, where they are frequently charged inflated prices. Now, World Help's Iraq Mobile Medical Clinic can go directly to the refugee communities, providing the care they need at no cost.
