CT SCAN IN ALEPPO
Years of armed conflict has carved huge gaps in Syria’s local and national medical infrastructure, deepened the need for secondary healthcare services and escalated the necessity for remedial rehabilitation provisions.
Operating in collaboration with Independent Doctors’ Association (IDA), Help Refugees seek to fill the gaps where international governments and big NGOs fail to do so. Recently, we funded the first CT scan to be in operation in the Northern Aleppo countryside since February 2016.
It is the first time a CT scan is in operation in the Northern Aleppo countryside area since February 2016. Its arrival will greatly boost the healthcare status of the local population by enabling three-dimensional scanning of the human body.
The humanitarian situation in Northern Aleppo degraded last year when humanitarian and commercial access became restricted and hundreds of thousands fled ISIS advances and government airstrikes pounding the region. Today 150,000 IDPs are conglomerated into IDP camps in Azaz district, which has put pressure on the host community.
Help Refugees are honoured to partner with IDA whose healthcare services are not only some the most professional we have seen but also with the fight for humanity at the core of everything they do.
