In addition, we supported COVID-19 activities inside Zaatari camp, monitoring the condition of confirmed patients and their contacts, and transferring those in need of care to our treatment center. More serious cases were referred to the public hospital in Mafraq.
Our reconstructive surgery program for war-wounded patients from Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Palestine steadily resumed its activities after the COVID-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions. The hospital is unique in that it offers orthopedic, plastic, and maxillofacial surgery, as well as a package of holistic care services to ensure that people make a full physical and mental recovery. This includes physical therapy, pain management, mental health care, social support, and even a school for child patients.
At the end of 2021, we handed over our project in Irbid governorate to the Ministry of Health and other NGOs present in the area. Our clinics in Irbid had provided Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians with treatment for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes and hypertension, leading causes of death in the region. Our services included medical and mental health care, psychosocial support, physical therapy, health education, and home-based care.
