Mosul Humanitarian Crisis

Earlier this month NYCMedics conducted a needs assessment in Iraq in response to an urgent request for humanitarian assistance from the World Health Organization.

Today, we are mounting our efforts to respond and will operate a Trauma Stabilization Point (TSP), a field clinic located behind the front lines of the military offensive in Mosul. TSPs are the first point of medical contact with people gravely injured in the conflict providing vital emergency and stabilization care.

Operating this TSP will have a lifesaving impact on thousands of people.

Without this direct intervention, people will continue to die because they do not have access to the appropriate care necessary to keep them alive in the field and during transport to the hospital where they can receive higher level surgical trauma care.

NYCM has put medical volunteers into the field to provide life saving medical care for approximately $80 a day.  This means that on average we can medically intervene in someones life for $4.  We think this is a remarkable number.  When you realize how important $4 can be, efficiency becomes a core value.

You can feel confident knowing that 90 cents of every dollar donated supports NYC Medics disaster relief and humanitarian aid programs.
