Project Description

Region: Eastern Europe

Country: Turkey

Location: Hatay

Total Budget: $37,500

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

After two devastating earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.7 and 7.6 respectively, Turkey has suffered irreplaceable

loss in 10 cities. More than 40.000 people have died and that number is rising rapidly.

These 10 cities hosted 13,5M Turkish citizens and 1,7M Syrian refugees which adds up to 15,2M affected people.

1 of every 6 inhabitants in Turkey is affected by this disaster.

Not only the residences collapsed during the earthquake, but also the government institutions. Most

importantly, hospitals were affected. Some cities suffer from a complete loss of hospitals after the earthquake.

The remaining hospitals are trying to work over their capacity to serve the demand.

Turkey's Ministry of Health has determined that the earthquake has restricted or prevented civilians from

accessing health care and clean water, Food and sanitation. Population displacement, food and water shortages,

damage to infrastructure, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress are among the phenomena which need to be


The purpose of this project is to place mobile medical clinics (MMC) in

destroyed areas (southeaster part of Türkiye and Syrian border) where medical professionals can treat and

ultimately save lives of victims that reach the clinic. These mobile emergency clinics will restore medical aid in

the earthquake-affected areas where the medical infrastructure no longer exists See attached map for details.

While people are being encouraged to leave the earthquake-affected areas, not everyone can leave and those

remaining still require medical care.

These units are insulated so that they can function year-round. The unit is also reinforced in the frame and the

exterior walls for fire resistance.

Each unit will also contain a 7.5 kW generator, with a fully operational electric system and backup, as well as its

own internet connectivity

as its own internet connectivity. The mobile medical clinics have an expected service life of ten years and will be

maintained or replaced by the Turkish Ministry of Health if necessary.

Each unit will be staffed 24/7 by medical staff available in the community of ADIYAMAN, where it is deployed

or as designated by the Ministry of Health.

The units are produced entirely in Türkiye, which supports the Turkish economy and provides jobs for civilians.

All medical equipment that each unit will contain will come from the Türkiye.
