Women's Holistic Health centre
The Women’s Holistic Health Centre is a a dedicated space for survivor women. The centre helps to support our ongoing mission to provide treatment, rehabilitation, education and empowerment for Yazidi genocide survivors.
On the 3rd of August 2018 Joint Help for Kurdistan officially opened the Women’s Holistic Health Centre which is a dedicated space for women at Bajed Kandala 2 camp. The Women’s Holistic Health Centre helps to support our ongoing mission to provide treatment, rehabilitation, education and empowerment for Yazidi genocide survivors.
Since 2014 Joint Help for Kurdistan has provided basic healthcare services to the camp population through our field clinic, as well as initiatives to support education, mental health, women’s empowerment, and emergency relief to poor and orphaned families.
Over time the team at JHK felt that it was essential to have a dedicated women’s space to offer truly holistic support programmes for the most vulnerable women: from medical care to social activities and skills training.
The beauty of our Women’s Holistic Health Centre at Bajed Kandala camp is that it is run by local women themselves, by survivors of genocide and slavery who come together to learn and to build and to grow.
The Holistic Women’s Centre is built by our kind supporters and donors who have contributed in their own different ways: by giving money, sewing machines, furniture, or donating their time and expertise to teach workshops We are particularly grateful to Ms Sevi, a genocide survivor and gifted tailor who has been teaching close to 70 women since 2017.
