Maternitainer trucks deployed in Iraq for Mosul
Hospitainer trained UN and NGO staff on how to use the Maternitainer trucks for the Refugees fleeing from Mosul. Pregnant women and victims of gender-based violence dearly need a safe and private place to give birth and be treated.
One doctor explained: “I saw a woman who delivered in a tent. She could not stop bleeding and when I found her she had almost died. We need to bring these units immediately to the IDP camps for displaced people.”In total 13 Hospitainer trucks were ordered, of which 9 were Maternitainers and 4 were Genealogical trucks that also serve as an ambulance.
The trucks were financed by:
UNOCHA (Iraq Humanitarian Pooled Fund)
European Commission (Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection)
