Following the March 12, 2015 conference (tofiq-conference.org), the Minister of Health HE Dr. Adeela Hmood has kindly offered to host our volunteer surgeons who offered to go to Iraq to help Iraqi surgeons with the huge bulk of injured patients and also to deal with complicated surgical diseases.
The Ministry of Health will cover their travel and accommodation expenses with ensuring their security in Iraq.
The first team was to depart on October 5, 2015 but was postponed because of the flare up of Cholera at that time and the whole ministry was engaged in controlling the disease. We expect the next departure will be mid-December, 2015.
There were 6 surgeons to go in October and 4 in December.
Below is the official letter signed by HE Minister Dr. Adeela.
