Mosul Treatment Center
December 2019 Report
Your donations mean to the world to our patients, and we'd like to keep you updated on the great work we are doing in Mosul.
The Growing Demand for Treatment
Since opening, our treatment center in Mosul has received more than 180 individual cases, 66 of which have been acquired in the past three months (since September 2019). Some patients that have received psychiatric and medical treatment have been discharged, while others continue to receive care.
The quick rise in new cases means our treatment center is need of more resources to meet the demands. Our current budget is not enough to meet the needs of our patients, so we are working toward spreading awareness of our center and acquiring more international support.
The rise in patient cases demonstrates how effective our communication among the local population has been. Psychiatric care is often overlooked in Mosul, so our initial aim was to educate people about the benefits of addressing mental health and normalizing such care. Most patients in the center suffer from severe depression and PTSD, but until recently many had not sought treatment. Many of our patients arrive because of recommendations from other patients, which we consider the highest compliment to our work.
How Your Donations are Spent
We are currently collecting to fund the following needs:
- Medical equipment and medication (We are currently limited in the range of medical assistance we can provide; a larger budget will allow us to expand medical services and provide much needed medication)
- Physiotherapy room and equipment (Balance and training equipment to help patients' physical rehabilitation)
- Therapeutic toys and furniture for children (Children often respond well to objects of play, which aide in their self-expression and are essential to recovery)
- Transportation (many patients are unable to travel to the center, and the growing number of appointments means we will need to invest more in transportation)
All donations collected here provide funding for the aforementioned requests and in accordance with necessity and demand.
Locally Employed Staff
At the Mosul center we currently have two medical doctors (one male, one female), one psychiatrist, four psychotherapists, one social worker and a lawyer on staff.
