Shipping Container to Kurdistan

Project Update:

There has been significant progress in filling the 40ft Container with Medical equipment and Women’s Health kits. We hope to have the container on the sea in July heading to Kurdistan. The medical equipment will be distributed throughout hospitals in the Duhok province. The equipment will assist Kurdish residents, Syrian Refugees and Yazidi Displaced people seeking surgery or treatment. The Women’s Health kits will be distributed to women and girls in 3 Refugee Camps by NGO The Lotus Flower. See contents list of shipping container at the end of this report.
