ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – According to a report released by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Kuwait has funded the purchase of life-saving medical supplies to a major dialysis facility in Erbil, Al-Jumhouria Hospital.
 
IOM reported that the dialysis unit of Al-Jumhouri Hospital are lacking the much needed dialysis units and medication for patients with kidney disease. The shipments received on Monday will help serve the needs of these patients.
 
Dr. Farid Mohammad from the hospital stated that with the donations to their dialysis unit, they will now be able to provide life-saving services for at least the next three months.
 
Al-Jumhouri Hospital dialysis unit treats approximately 100 patients per week including locals, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and Syrian refugees.
 
Their dialysis services are free of charge.
 
The average cost of dialysis in the United States can range between $500 and $1,400 for uninsured patients per treatment and in most cases, patients requiring dialysis due to kidney failure or disease need at least three treatments per week.
 
Kuwait has also donated an additional $4 million to support IOM with their efforts to provide emergency humanitarian relief to Mosul’s newly displaced. More and more people are fleeing as the military campaign to liberate the old city of west Mosul intensifies.
