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.
Christian medical personnel, especially lab technicians, are urgently needed to staff the hospital for deployments of three weeks or longer—go here to learn more about serving on our Disaster Assistance Response Team in Iraq.
Particular needs include trauma/general surgeons, anesthesiologists, emergency medicine physicians, ward physicians, operating room nurses, intensive care unit nurses, laboratory technicians, and scrub technicians.
