On 12th November 2017, 21:10 pm local time, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck Iraq and Iran, near the border between the two countries.  Over 400 people have been killed and several thousand injured.  In Iraq, the brunt of the earthquake was felt in east Kurdistan. There has been widespread destruction of houses, health facilities and infrastructure and the main hospital in Darbandikhan was closed by extensive damage.  Within hours, IHP's partner was able to send medicine to reach the casualties.  So far we have sent 30,000 treatments. However now they urgently need to receive more supplies.






To help us get the medicines to Iraq please support our appeal.  For every £100 we receive we can send over £1,500 worth of medicines and help 200 people affected by this disaster.
