Rojava is a region surrounded by conflict and the ongoing economic embargo makes daily life extremely difficult. With the majority of resources going to the front lines in the fight against ISIS, civilians often go without to support the revolution. The lack of medicine and medical facilities is particularly dire and has disproportionately affected women. Therefore, we are launching a new project to build mobile health clinics focused on women’s health,that will be able to reach a large percentage of the female civilian population of Rojava for basic care such as pregnancy needs, vaccinations for babies and young children, basic checkups, general and preventative care, and education.
