arche noVa is active were the IDPs reside. Many of them do not live in camps but found shelter somewhere in the homes of relatives or friends. One of the regions where refugees fled to is the district Diyala. arche noVa is providing for them with three mobile medical teams.
Abdullatef Mohammed Shnawa and the other employees of the medical Team take care of new arrivals as well es of resident patients. Everybody suffers equally from the difficult supply situation in the remote areas.
Abdullatef Mohammed Shnawa nimmt sich für jeden Patienten Zeit. Das Gesundheitsteam kümmert sich sowohl um neu zugezogene als auch ortsansässige Dorfbewohner. Die schwierige Versorgungslage in der Region trifft alle Menschen gleichermaßen.
To improve the living conditions sustainably arche noVa staff maintains and constructs the local water and sanitation system. The photo shows a pumping station about to be fixed. In other places the team extends sewers or repairs wells.
Andernorts wird die Kanalisation ausgebaut oder Brunnen erneuert.
