Shingal-Duhok-Erbil-Mosul-Nineveh Health Care 

Last week medical staff in Mosul met a family that had "escaped" from an IDP Camp near Erbil and had sneaked back into Mosul to go back to their home and to see their nurse for health care. One of the women is pregnant. She and her baby would not survive in the camp.


Yes, the nicest nurses take care of moms and babies in the weirdest places. 


This is Wendy. She needs a liver transplant. Her chances would be better if she were in Mosul but she is in a camp near Duhok. Her doctor is swamped with patients and handicapped with minimal resources. 

The point is that while your governments are bombing and killing thousands of civilians and displacing literally millions of ordinary people they are not doing anything for these displaced persons. Some governments have given money to armed militias to buy more guns. So far nothing has been used to buy medicine. Nothing. We are disgusted by what we see. There are no displaced person camps for people bombed out of their homes. Many the milities just shoot or turn back.  The bombing continues. 

We are in the region and nearly helpless because we don't have the donations of money and supplies that we need. We treat people where we find them in ghetto enclaves and bombed out villages.

Sorry, but you are going to have to do this. No government will.

Your names will go down in history. 

Starting in Shingal and moving east we are working jointly with the Yezidi Community to fund a health care plan for the regions of northern Iraq inhabited by the Yezidis. That includes Nineveh (Mosul), Shingal, Duhok and Erbil communities and camps.

Yezidi Press Release
RINJ.Press Release

These people have been pushed from their homes by the terrorist group ISIS and by Iraqi airplanes recklessly bombing them. They are the victims of genocide according to  the international community.

They need your gift so that we may help them.

Watch the video.





Our goal is to get our brothers and sisters back on their feet. Next, we teach and we build the skeleton of a new health care system. We teach and we encourage local talent to get their education, to become certified and to take over the system we build together. With a happy smile we walk away after about four years and leave the system in the hands of the local people and come back when we are invited meanwhile offering more teaching as we learn more in other parts of the world. Like it? Please help.

Joining the nurses are the Yezidis frim Shingal and Yezidis the world over. – Yezidi Post. Aug. 7, 2016

The Nurses Without Borders set out their goals and milestones in taking care of these ISIS Victims. They need medical care, urgently, now. Please Donate now,

 

Watch the video.  This video contains violent and potentially triggering content that graphically teaches the reasons why and sets out the methods for combating Gender-Based Violence in war zones under the Rome Accord for the International Criminal Court 



Roughly 2 million ISIS victims in Nineveh, Duhok, Anbar and Erbil governorates in the Kurdish region of Iraq are displaced persons.   Their homes are gone because of  ISIS brutality.

A million more Islamic State Victims will soon flee from Mosul.

THE CRISIS

Kurdish Christians & Yazidis have faced genocide.  

A million victims will soon be freed from Mosul.  

The survivors are in bad shape.

We will  take care of  survivors
with your help.  

Please donate what you can. 

Women & children suffer most.

New Technology: I ask you to fund these new long-term-use Digital Technology TRF-Regional Surgical Clinics and Health-Care Units  because they will Enhance General Health Care and ensure the future of these people's well being.  

The starting number is 30 units and they cost $60,000 fully equipped.

Simply put they are miniturized patient-care medical equipments installed in rugged steel shipping containers recycled from units like this:

We designed a new mobile clinic system to provide high quality health care at low cost.We want to perfect these economical soultions in the field, helping the victims of ISIS and at the same time building a forward looking system for human disaster relief.


We are trying to keep these people alive.

 Our goal is to get them back on their feet.


Kids and their families already displaced suffer in poor conditions in makeshift camps--no meds and no care. Not good. They get sick and the sickness spreads everywhere. We need to stop this and return these people to health and to a healthy home and stop the spread of infectious disease.

TRF-RSC provides an efficient way to treat more patients and deal with a wider range of health problems. Efficiency of patient diagnostic imaging and lab analysis coupled with comparative visit data management helps maintain public health standards and patient support and treatment levels better than pre-conflict care.


We have brick and mortar facilities but need to put transportable unite into camps. We need medicines. We take donations in all forms. This is the kind of equipment we must buy:

Mental health is also significant problem with ISIS survivors including Christians and Yazidis threatened with extinction.

We have a set of trauma care protocols  to deal with pervasive shock and PTSD as well as other chronic disorders. The job at hand is to return people to active, meaningful lives.

WHY THE   S O L U T I O N   WORKS

W  E     C A R E 

 The RINJ Foundation has adopted an elaborated  Canadian model of the remote community health care Nurse-Practitioner-Led tele-health clinic. It works.


1) Patient Privacy Assured 

2) Sustainable Sterility in Hostile Environments 

3) Sustainable Life Support 

4) Protection against natural and human antagonists 

5) Minified diagnostics and surgical equipment 

 6) Wireless integrated encrypted digital systems 

 7) Real time video surveillance and reporting to central hub. 


W E   C A R E



 The design  is Canadian .
Protocols.  https://rinj.org/documents/medical_forms/ 

Risks and challenges
Humanitarian workers , especially doctors and nurses, are at enormous risk in areas of armed combat and refugee camps because they are identified as having no protective or retaliatory affiliations. The clinic design must be self sufficient and the choice of heavy-duty commercial grade 40ft. shipping containers makes the occupants safer from small arms fire. Other safety measures must be adopted.

NGO HealthCare Project for Iraq Refugees Seeks $Money ( www.gofundme.com/RSAC-Iraq/)

A GoFundMe Campaign to help homeless Kurdish people in the semi-autonomous region of Kurdish Iraq is being ignored by North Americans, most of whom do not want to hear the word “Iraq”. The campaign is sponsored by The RINJ Foundation‘s CEO, Micheal O’Brien who recently published a paper on the humanitarian crisis in Kurdistan. ( https://rinj.org/interactive/?page_id=2178)




Pic1 The RINJ Foundation Shekhan Camp Refugees
These Kurdish people represent the “the broken, the beaten and the damned in the Wake of The Black Parade“. They are innocents in the Kurdish Region of Iraq where land owners want $millions for the rent of land needed for new refugee camps.

The purpose of the slow moving fundraising campaign is to raise money for the manufacture of new mobile HealthCare Clinics using refurbished steel shipping containers to comprise medical clinics for Nineveh, Duhok, Shingal & Erbil Camps.

The Nineveh (Mosul) locations are yet to be created refugee camps to house a million people who will be left homeless once the invasion of Mosul begins by up to one score of armies and militias opposed to the self-styled “Islamic State” crime syndicate that hijacked a vulnerable religion to build membership and invade Middle East cities.

Two major wars between the USA and Iraq and a lengthy American-occupation of Iraq have left Americans tired of hearing the name of that country. According to some Americans, news from Baghdad makes some want to vomit.

Certainly 4,491 American service members killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2014 leaves a bad feeling.

The American shame over 112,000-123,000* Iraqi civilian noncombatants killed by American invasions of Iraq between 2003 and 2014 can’t help either (some estimates put the civilian death toll at over 500,000 and Americans hear that number often too).

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s feud with the parents of a fallen Muslim-American soldier doesn’t help fix American reticence to help mend the badly damaged Iraqi people.

“Refugees” have a horrible reputation and in Europe are kicked round like football between countries that don’t want them.

One Social Media request for donations resulted in a post with 27 “likes” saying, “Refugees? No! BARF!”

But this NGO is trying to avoid refugee migration by making these victims’ homeland habitable, safe and healthy again after Britain, France, Iraq, America, Jordan and Turkey have bombed their homes to rubble.

As one donor to the “Kids Without Homes in Kurdistan” GofundMe campaign noted, “I feel sorry for these nice Kurdish people but I am so sick of hearing about Iraq’s problems. All my life I am hearing horror stories about that God-forsaken hell hole.”

The-RINJ-Foundation-3500-Iraqi-Children-in-Fallujah-camp

But American bombs are still falling in Iraq and killing people. The US policy was recently changed to allow tolerance for up to ten civilians killed per bomb in Mosul. That’s how they allow themselves to pick their targets.

The UN children’s agency, ‘Unicef’, says 3.6 million children face a litany of risks – an increase of 1.3 million in 18 months. A third of all Iraqi children – 4.7 million – need humanitarian aid. But who will pay for that humanitarian aid?

What is proposed for these children and their families is a series of RSAC Nurse-Led transportable clinics built into recycled 20ft and 40ft steel shipping containers. The initial surge is to be 30 units installed from Shingal east to Duhok and south from Duhok through Erbil to Nineveh provinces and eventually in the outskirts of Mosul.

The NGO (The RINJ Foundation) is pioneering “Team-Based Health Care”. Mobile RSAC Team Leads are most likely to be an RN (Registered Nurse) but regionally they report to and are delegated by a Nurse Practitioner (NP). NPs are an integral part of The RINJ Foundation‘s primary care teams strategy and lead the move to team-based medical practice in community settings.

NPs are especially effective in refugee and combat regions as well as rural settings where there are shortages of doctors, and with patients who suffer a multitude of chronic illnesses and are ill-suited for and need more than a traditional seven-minute doctor’s appointment.

The RSAC Nurse-led clinics offer free medical care to women, children and their families. Community related services such as advocacy, crisis hotlines, community outreach, & education programs are provided based on each Clinic’s resources at the discretion of the local RSAC nurse-led team.

A recently published Unicef report says 3.6 million children face risks including death or sexual violence, and 4.7 million need humanitarian aid as a result of the conflict.

The RINJ Foundation’s goal is to find benefit for patients and in the case of minor children or youth, to see that they are if possible returned to the safety of a genuine home. Follow this link for more information or simply contact the NGO here.

Satellite data networks securely access encrypted patient records from a brick and mortar location and VSee /TeleHealth medical video conferencing is available with remote medical and surgical specialists.

The mental health of the people the RINJ Nurses care for is extremely fragile stressing the importance of available care. There are many triggers capable of causing their state of mind to rapidly deteriorate. Living conditions they are forced to face, memories of their ordeal, and uncertainty about what is going to happen to these patients are factors contributing to thoughts of suicide and eventual deaths.

The RINJ Foundation is seeking https://rinj.org/volunteers and financial contributions ( https://rinj.org/donate/).

The fundraiser CAMPAIGN is on! Our mobile clinics have a critical role to play in providing high-quality care to vulnerable people in Kurdistan at an efficient cost. Help us reduce the death rate and return these people to a healthy homeland.

Currently the 2.9 million people already displaced are in urgent need of health care. Both the Red Cross and Amnesty International agree with our assertion that up to one million people will be displaced as military action begins against the self-styled Islamic State terrorists occupying Mosul, Nineveh Iraq.

We raise our funds privately and are not supported by any government. We will always tell you the truth about what we see.

Please make a small contribution. A $5.00 donation goes a long way.

Wow. This is a Canadian Charity. Makes me proud to be a Canadian nurse. I was up at home for holiday in the Philippines at the end of August and start of September, po. The RINJ has a big place in Baguio and Mindanao. But on top of helping patients the important side is they are up there in Manila raising hell by charging rapists and getting the word out about police raping the women who go to the Barangay to make a complaint. ha ha making Sir. Duterte mad. (sorry sir) Just helping broken people women and kids isn't enough. It's good the RINJ speak loud to the United Nations to help stop the gender violence.
