Eid Charity opens medical centre near Iraq’s Mosul

The Peninsula

DOHA: Sheikh Eid Charitable Foundation (Eid Charity) has opened a medical centre to provide health services to the internally displaced people from Mosul at Debika Al Malab camp located between Al Mosul and Irbil, capital of Kurdistan-Iraq.

More than 6,000 people are expected to benefit from the centre. The project was financed by a donor from Qatar.
The centre was opened amid growing demands for medical services as more than 700,000 people are expected to flee from Mosul due to the unrest. The move is a precautionary measure taken by Eid Charity to protect the fleeing residents of Mosul from a humanitarian crises-like situation.

The centre is the first medical facility opened at Debika Al Malab camp for displaced people. It comprises four portacabins housing a reception for patients, clinics, laboratory and pharmacy.

The centre has specialist clinics to cure women and children suffering from any disease. The laboratory provides different types of medical tests.

Eid Charity urged people in Qatar to extend a helping hand to their brothers in Iraq who are facing a tough time. Donations could be made online through “Eid Donation” mobile app, website or sms to 923324, 920244, 928604 and 928614 for donating QR50, QR100, QR500 or QR1,000 respectively.
