MOBILE CLINIC FOR WAR VICTIMS
Since March 2015, health services have been particularly strained. The health clinics are unable to cope with the growing numbers of emergency cases. The post-operation and post-emergency paramedical services for the physically disabled and injured are suffering from the low availability of basic medicine and first aid supplies, leading to severe health complications that could be mitigated. The paramedic nurses cannot reach all the needy patients because they cannot access transportation. Also, the lack of diabetic medicine (insulin) in the market, and when available at prohibitive costs, is placing many lives at risk.
The project will support the Sho’ub medical clinic to improve its services and outreach to the physical disabled and war-injured. It will focus on (i) the provision of a van equipped with basic first aid facilities to reach out to patients; (ii) medicines and first aid material for the clinic; and (iii) a stock of insulin for the diabetic patients.
