Help Protect Mosul and Fight the Spread of COVID-19

Iraqi Health Workers

From the start, EPIC has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak in Iraq. Early on, we sounded the alarm about the threat to Iraq’s health care system and more recently, the exponential rise in cases with health care workers being twice as likely to contract the virus.

Unfortunately, despite our efforts, the response by the U.S. and international community continues to fall short. Today we are taking matters into our own hands, and we need your help to do it.

EPIC and our long-time partner, the Iraq Health Access Organization (IHAO), have joined forces to launch a COVID-19 Emergency Response. Our goal is to rapidly raise $30,000 in 30 days to aid two hospitals fighting the spread of COVID-19 in Mosul, Iraq.

Help Health Workers in Mosul Stay Safe, Save Lives, and
Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic

To help us reach our goal, we invite you to donate, spread the word on social media to rally more support and awareness about the need for #IraqCOVIDRelief, and invite friends and family to our fundraiser on Facebook.

Your generous support and the contributions that you help generate will supply two hospitals in Mosul with urgently needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), oxygen tanks, and technical assistance to fight the outbreak. Your support will also help us recruit an Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) specialist to train and mentor Iraqi doctors, nurses, and hospital support staff.

No matter how successful we may become in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic here at home, we must also work together with friends and colleagues around the world to win this fight globally.

Only then can we make tomorrow safer for everyone.
