Faris’ Words Encapsulate The Extraordinary Work That Has Taken Place At The Rehabilitation Centre Since 1998.
"I have witnessed thousands of people return back to their daily life and community through EMERGENCY’s services."
“EMERGENCY’s work continues here at our Rehabilitation Centre. We want to be a solution, a glimmer of hope for those who have had their lives disrupted by mines and explosive weapons. Humanitarian work is not enough in itself though. It needs to be supported by widespread demining, as well as legislation to ensure an end to the production and sale of these weapons.
The incredible professionals you see here are part of a team of over 60 people who strive to provide prostheses, physiotherapy, and vocational training. Together, they provided care to 641 patients in 2021.
Our work here is crucial. The Sulaymaniyah Rehabilitation Centre has been restoring people’s autonomy for 24 years. There is lots more to do.
