VPM Mobile Clinic and Milk Project in Syria

Posted in Fund Disbursement

Our mobile clinic is the only one running by specialist doctors in Yarmouk camp, Syria where the majority there are Palestinian refugees. All the other clinics are closed since doctors were either killed or fled. Our KL Palestine Film Festival (KLPFF2016) on 29-30 Oct is to raise more funds for this project. Each clinic last one week long in every month. Each week-long clinic costs USD 3,000. We would like to plan for the next 6 months. Also, the funds raised from KLPFF2016 will be used to provide milk for the children at the camp. The price of milk and medicine is very high if they can be found at all.


Update:

VPM has done 2 mobile clinics in Yarmouk camp, Syria and the 3rd one is currently operating this week. This is the only medical facility in the camp. Specialists in different fields come everyday for a week to treat about 1,000 patients in that week. It cost USD 3,000 per week because doctors come from Palestine Red Crescent. Some of the photos below were sent to us by Abdullah Alkhatib who lives in Yarmouk and who was awarded the Human Rights award by the Swedish Government. The money we are hoping to raise from our KL Palestine Film Festival 2016 this weekend is to fund this project. We are targeting to run this clinic for the next 6 months.
