We are collecting medical equipment that will be delivered to the Department of Health in Duhok, Kurdistan, Northern Iraq and be distributed through their hospitals in the Duhok Province.

The DOH hospitals provide medical service for all the Kurdish residents and the many thousands of refugees and IDPs living in the camps in the Duhok Province.

We are very grateful to the hospitals that are providing the equipment – Dubbo Private Hospital, Foster Private Hospital, Maitland Private Hospital and Toronto Private Hospital.

Funding is still required to cover the transport costs of the shipping container from Botany Bay, to Mersin, Turkey then overland into Duhok, Kurdistan, Northern Iraq.

Thank you for your support.

    1. Hi Paul,
      Thanks for commenting on the ABC News Article. We are pretty strictly NSW-based as the logistics involved in shipping medical equipment is pretty complicated, from NSW alone. As we are based in Newcastle, so we can manage the collection of equipment and container packing process relatively easily. But a 40 ft container has a pretty large capacity, so everything has to be brought together. That pretty much rules out equipment from WA unless a very kind transport company will bring across for us and deliver it to Singleton, where the container is.
      Cheers,
      Kim Henley
