My husband used to carry the burden of the family and the house on his shoulders, but he died five years ago. Currently, our living situation is very difficult, and we no longer have any provider other than God.” With these words, the aunt expressed her condition after years of suffering, and continued: “I suffer from diabetes, and I often suffer from falling into a coma, and I do not have the ability to go to the doctor or buy medicines, and none of the organizations that provide medical services have visited us so far.” Complimentary”. The outreach team within the Mobile Health Clinics Project observed the condition of Aunt Safia during one of its tours of the camps in the city of Azaz, where the team presented an awareness session about diabetes, which she was suffering from, and then looked at her health condition in particular and discussed with her about her conditions and the difficulties she faces. After the initial assessment of Aunt Safia’s condition, the team decided to visit her where she lived in the tent, to closely monitor her health and living situation, where a specialist doctor examined her and indicated to the nurses the need to transfer her to the hospital to carefully monitor her health condition and give her the necessary treatment. The Reviving Hope Organization team ensured that Mrs. Safiya was transported to Azaz National Hospital via the mobile clinic vehicle, and accompanied her during her examination and during the necessary medical tests, and then returned her to her home after she received the medications that the doctor prescribed for her.
