Our field trauma hospital has now begun receiving patients injured during the battle to liberate Mosul.

See live updates from our team in Iraq as they begin to receive patients from Mosul and surrounding areas.

Samaritan’s Purse has sent an emergency field hospital equipped with an emergency room, two operating rooms, nearly 50 beds, and more than 70 staff to the Plains of Nineveh. We are treating injuries from gunfire, mortar rounds, and other explosives as many dozens are harmed daily in the conflict between Iraqi and coalition forces and ISIS militants in Mosul.

Particular needs include trauma/general surgeons, anesthesiologists, emergency medicine physicians, ward physicians, operating room nurses, intensive care unit nurses, laboratory technicians, and scrub technicians.

Northern Iraq Projects Samaritan's Purse continues to help meet the long-term physical and spiritual needs of those displaced by ISIS. Among our projects, we are offering a variety of livelihoods programs to assist the Yazidi people, and we have set up child-friendly spaces for boys and girls to learn and grow while staying in camps as well. We are also facilitating the return of Christian families to their homes and churches in the Plains of Nineveh. They need our help to repair damage, replace doors, windows, and fixtures, and paint over ISIS graffiti as they reclaim their towns in the Name of Jesus.
