Hunger aid and education
After years of war, people’s supplies are exhausted. The conditions are unimaginable, and help is urgently needed.
In cooperation with the Red Crescent, AVC humanitarian aid contributes to ensuring medical care in the region. As mobile clinics, the hospitainers provide initial medical care in emergencies, minor interventions and obstetrics.

Hospitainer - Mobile clinics
In 2016, AVC humanitarian aid put the first mobile clinic on a truck into operation. Initially travelling in the region around Kobane, it was moved into the city at the beginning of the reconquest of Raqqa. A team of four doctors, two nurses, a driver and a soldier are on duty almost around the clock to withstand the onslaught of thousands of refugees. The nearest hospital is 180 km away.
The basic equipment of a mobile clinic enables 2000 local anaesthetic operations. Thanks to support from US-Aid (one time) and the Red Crescent, medicine and medical treatments worth tens of thousands of Swiss francs can be delivered every month. Women, pregnant women, seniors and children line up daily to be treated.
Three mobile clinics are currently in operation in the Kobane-Raqqa-Aleppo triangle and off Afrin.
In order to avoid becoming a sudden enemy target and part of the raging war in Syria, our local team mainly looks after the elderly, women and children.
