Marion Robinson worked as a psychologist at the MSF hospital in Qayyarah, a town some 70 kilometres from Mosul, in Iraq’s Ninewa governorate. It had been under the control of the Islamic State (IS) group for two and a half years before the Iraqi army retook control of the area at the end of August 2016.
Emergency Room in Syrian besieged area
This video shows a busy ER in a hospital in one of the besieged areas near Damascus. In the besieged parts of the East Ghouta rural area near Damascus, Syria, intense bombing has been continuing for weeks, on an almost daily basis, and is still ongoing. MSF has established a programme of supporting Syrian medics in areas where MSF cannot directly set up activities. These are makeshift hospitals and health centres where no MSF staff are present, and MSF provides both material support and distance training support to help the hospitals cope with extreme medical needs.
