Question: With this flight came everything that makes a building a hospital: medicines, instruments, operation theatre
Question: Next step is to level the ground at the camp site so that we can start erecting the tents. Initially the hospital will operate in tents, later in the autumn we will move into more permanent constructions.
Question: The impact of this hospital is big since there are very few medical facilities in this area. The hospital serving the refugees at the camp is a secondry level hospital. Another partner takes care of the primary health care and we the secondary. We will have a maternity ward and can also make minor operations.
