Mobile medical clinic for MSF in Ter Apel
Early this morning we left for ter Apel. Here MSF started their medical mission yesterday. They offer medical help, both physical and mental, to the asylum seekers who have been waiting outside the gates of the asylum seekers’ center for days and weeks. The situation is becoming more dire by the day and infectious disease is spreading through the unhygienic living environment.
Hospitainer was asked to deliver a mobile unit in two days. This morning while setting up, people immediately came to ask for support and care. Basic care such as a first aid post and support for people with chronic diseases is mainly provided. They also see people who suffer from mental problems that they have incurred after the conflicts in their home country, the flight to a safer place and the endless waiting and hope for approval to stay in the Netherlands.
