HELP HEAL THE WOUNDED
UNDER SIEGE IN ASHRAF
A horrific attack on Camp Ashraf by Iraqi Government forces in the early hours of 8th April 2011 has created a very critical situation for the many wounded.
As a result of this massacre, 23 men and women lost their lives immediately. Over 300 were wounded, 178 by gunshot. Many are in serious condition.
Eleven of the wounded died within 48 hours, raising the death toll to 34. Doctors report from Ashraf that most of these could have been saved had they received proper treatment.
Due to the effects of the continuing siege in restricting medical supplies, Ashraf hospital is unable to provide adequate treatment as it has no oxygen, or blood for transfusions, available.
Some of the wounded were taken eventually to local Iraqi hospitals, several hours after they were wounded, but were returned to Ashraf without having been treated properly, apart from six who died while in those hospitals.
One who died there was a young woman, Saba Haft-Baradaran (right). She had been shot in the leg and, had she received treatment, she would have survived. Sadly, she did not and so the attack claimed another victim.
There are still over 300 wounded men and women in Ashraf needing healing which it is vitally important for Ashraf hospital to be able to provide.
Please help us with a donation…
…to support a very important campaign to lift the restrictions imposed on Ashraf so that vital medical supplies can be received.
This will enable the medical staff at Ashraf hospital to Heal the Wounded from this attack.
This will save many precious lives and we will be very grateful for your support.
