Serving the healthcare needs of fellow humans, without discrimination or preference, is a noble service to human dignity. Healthcare services of Hizmet participants include establishing affordable hospitals and offering free medical services, screening, and preventive healthcare.
To provide lasting support to those in impoverished areas, the Alliance and our partner organizations have built, or are in the process of building hospitals in various regions struck by natural disasters. Some of the countries where healthcare efforts have had a significant and lasting impact include Syria, Africa, and Haiti.
Last September, Kimse Yok Mu opened a healthcare center in Syria. The staff consists of ten volunteers, including two doctors, two nurses and two pharmacists. Together, this team treated an average of 150 refugees in the polyclinic. Health screenings, vaccinations, and health education services are among other healthcare initiatives established by Hizmet volunteers in Africa. Read more…
Embrace Relief and Kimse Yok Mu are building a medical clinic in Port-Au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti. The clinic is planned to be in operation in end of the 2014.
Embrace Relief initiated “Water Wells” campaign to ease the difficulty of obtaining drinking water in Haiti, Senegal, Niger, Somali, Chad and Cameroon.
The droughts worsen and even drought-resistant camels are beginning to die. The death of the camels is an alarming sign that other less resistant wild life are in greater danger. It is clear that the living conditions are unbearable in a place where wild animals who are accustomed to extremely hard conditions die. This is even worse for people living in these regions because they have almost no drinking water. As human beings we should keep helping those who are in need.
The locals living in these regions cannot even obtain clean water, let alone drinking water, due to droughts, lack of infrastructure and past conflicts. We started the water wells campaign in May 2013. Embrace Relief plans to open 20 water wells by the end of the 2014.
