Summary

Thousands of women, men and children who survived the three-year ISIS occupation live without access to medical treatment. Many survivors suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression or chronic pain. Additionally, there is urgent need for surgical interventions and sustained medical treatment. In 2018, Jiyan Foundation established a treatment center in Mosul where doctors and psychologists treat survivors and provide transportation to our center, free of charge.

Challenge

In July 2017, the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul was liberated after three-years of ISIS occupation. Thousands of women, children, and men cannot access proper medical and psychological care. Medicine is scarce, most utilities have been destroyed, and the few existing hospitals are ill-equipped. Many suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and chronic pain while many others are in dire need of surgical interventions.

Solution

In 2018, Jiyan Foundation established a treatment center in Mosul where doctors and psychologists treat survivors free of charge. We provide free medical and psychological treatment to our patients. For patients located outside the city, or who are unable to travel themselves, Jiyan Foundation provides transportation to and from their homes and our treatment center.

Long-Term Impact

The Jiyan Foundation was first established in 2005. We have treated more than 70,000 survivors of human rights violations in 12 centers across Northern Iraq. Our local doctors, psychologists and physiotherapists work together to develop a long-term treatment plan for the optimal rehabilitation of our patients. These treatment programs often include sports, art, or animal therapy and are implemented in individual and group settings.
