United Arab Emirates, 7 June 2018
-- Achieving the launch of a medical Trauma Surgery Facility in Mosul, Iraq through a collaboration between Aspen Medical, Abu Dhabi UniTeam and Al Badie Group of Companies.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Al Mosul, Iraq (21/5/2018)
- Since its founding in 2003, Aspen Medical the Australian medical services provider has been operative worldwide to raise health standards in unfortunate areas, from fighting the Ebola outbreak in West Africa to stabilizing the Solomon Islands after its civil collapse, along with various actions that awarded them the gold medal in the International Humanitarian Aid Category. Today, Aspen Medical’s efforts, and with the help of Abu Dhabi Uniteam, has reached Iraq to mend a society torn by war against the terrorist group ISIS.
Upon collaborating with its sister company Abu Dhabi Uniteam, Aspen Medical managed to put into action a Trauma Facility Center in northern Iraq. The center correctly employs the domestic logistical assistance provided by the Emirati investing leader Al Badie Group whose staff members put every resource they have at the disposal of Aspen Medical, especially Dr. Yaseen AlKamas, the Iraqi national prominent for his education and career and the COO of Al Badie Group. Dr. Yaseen AlKamas
has successfully leveraged his deep experience in working with a wide range of NGOs and INGOs during the first years of Iraq reconstruction operations that were ran by international efforts after 2003.
When asked about his key role in organizing the efforts by leveraging his familiarity of Iraq’s logistics, domestic situation and needs, Dr. Yaseen AlKamas
commented: “This success is attributed to correctly employing hundreds of competent personnel and properly allocating the resources of Aspen Medical and major companies in the area such as Al-Badie Group, this was a group effort”.
The project comprised of a 48-bed trauma field hospital in Upper Athba, Mosul, Iraq which was the first tangible result yielded by this mission. This center went into operations on March 24, 2017. Its success encouraged opening a second facility in Hamam Al Alil, Mosul, Iraq on the 23rd of April. These centers also provided maternal facilities and catered to a wide spectrum of war traumas and injuries. The centers prevented further overcrowding of hospitals in Arbil and saved the injured a 4-hour trip to the nearest medical center, drastically reducing mortality rate.
