the project of sorting medical waste and intact  disposal of it is following up


In order to maintain public safety and prevent the spread of epidemics and diseases, as well as to protect the environment, the Kurdish Red Crescent’s WASH sector , in cooperation with donors and local institutions, is following up the project of sorting medical waste and intact  disposal of it through a specialized and trained team by establishing medical waste areas in several cities and camps in northern and eastern Syria, where medical waste is collected from hospitals and health centers, and those in camps, and  transporting it to medical waste areas for disposal in several ways,  burning, crushing, and landfilling, depending on the type of these materials, to ensure public safety and preserve the environment.

Continuing to distribute drinking water to people in the city of Hasakah

Within the Medico Switzerland project, the Kurdish Red Crescent, in coordination with councils and communes, is still distributing water to people in the neighborhoods of the city of Hasakah, which is witnessing a stifling crisis in securing drinking water as a result of its interruption from the Alouk station in the countryside of Sere Kaniye/Ras al-Ain, occupied by the Turkish state.
The Kurdish Red Crescent team supervising the distribution process checks the quality of the water and ensures its suitability for drinking before distributing it according to an organized schedule to the people.

Together for well health and clean environment

We, in the Kurdish Red Crescent Organization in northeastern Syria, have been working for several years to develop our projects aimed at the safe disposal of medical waste and expired medicines. Last week, we met with UPP, the Health Authority, the Medical Services Centre and the Municipalities Authority’s Health Committee to develop new plans to improve activities and implement them systematically in the region.
This project aims to preserve public health and the environment in our region, and reduce environmental pollution and the risks facing us. We are proud of our work and hope that this project will lead to our shared goals of improving health and the environment.
We invite you to join us on this important project and spread awareness about the importance of the safe disposal of medical waste and expired medicines. Thank you for your support and cooperation with us

distribute drinking water in Al-Hasaka

Due to the frequent water pumping cut-offs from #Alouk_station to Hasakah, and spreading #cholera epidemic, and also to meet the urgent need of getting safe drinking water, KRC #WASH team started a campaign to distribute water in tanks throughout the current week. This initiative was carried out in coordination with the Al-Hasakah District Council to distribute water to Al-Kallaseh neighborhood locals (comen Al-Shaheed Zubair on the first day) at a rate of 1 cubic meter (1000 liters) per family, and the number of beneficiaries in this initiative reached 83 families, inaddition to disterbute awareness brochures.


Tala’e/Sery Kaniye camp

Because of the consecutive rain during the past two days in Tala’e/Sery Kaniye camp, many tents were destroyed, knowing that those tents were housing families most of them were women and children. KRC teams hastened to provide all their needs, starting from transfer them by ambulances to the emergency tents, supporting them with the medical and PSS services. It is good to mention that those people are from the occupied city of Sere Ganee, it is occupied since 2019

Hasaka city lack to water in COVID19 conditions

Kurdish Red Crescent’s operation desk communicates daily with the confirmed cases of “Covid19” in Northern Syria , to following up and monitoring their cases and their families’ situation.
Until now, all the cases are mild cases and do not require medical interventions, just need continuous follow-up, which is what we do.
When our team contacted the case in Al-Hasakah, their question was about water (there is no water for showering and there is a little for drinking…).
Fortunately, the Kurdish Red Crescent recently starts a project to distribute water in several neighborhoods in Al-Hasaka, through this project we are providing the family with water and will continue as a temporary solution.
The most important thing that awareness campaigns focus to facing the Corona virus is personal hygiene and hand washing, and with the lack of water, prevention measures cannot be applied and the risk of spreading the infection increases further.
Cutting off water on a city facing such a pandemic and employing the needs of civilians for political purposes is a shame for any political party, and unfortunately, this is the situation in Al- Hasaka that has not received a suitable solution until now.

The distribution of our hygiene kits and water tanks is going on

thanks to medico international switzerland and the Municipality of Zurich, the Kurdish Red Crescent will reach over 25.000 beneficiaries and provide with hygiene items (Dettol soap, shampoo, towel etc.) and water tanks for Washokani camp.
Having a looking to special women needs and the necessary protection against COVID-19, the kits will be distributed in northeast Syria.
Awareness and prevention are the base for a healthy life.
