number 11 Autumn 2005
FROM THE CHAIRMAN
After 10 years of continuous challenges and achievements,
which have resulted in the saving of thousands of Iraqi
children's lives, MAIC faces its second decade with
a stronger determination to increase its aid and help
has been a rewarding year for the charity despite the
difficult security conditions in Iraq. We successfully
delivered several shipments of medicines and equipment
to paediatric hospitals in Baghdad and Basrah. We also
held our first Forum on 'Health of Children in Iraq'
in London. Many crucial issues were discussed by visiting
doctors from Iraq, including the alarming rise in child
cancers, psychological problems, malnutrition and the
spread of disease.
of Iraqi doctors was another diversification of MAIC's
humanitarian aid. Five Iraqi doctors were brought to
train in UK hospitals for a period of one month each.
This experience helped the doctors update their skills
and get acquainted with the latest medical equipment
and procedures. The value of this training was multiplied
on their return to Iraq as they shared their newly acquired
knowledge with their colleagues through seminars and
is blessed with the rising number of supporters and
the increased recognition they bring to the charity's
humanitarian work. We value deeply their participation
and their efforts which, in 2005, raised £333,666
through donations and fundraising activities.
forthcoming medical projects include shipments of medicines
and surgical items, wheelchairs, medical equipment,
and reagents for a radiometer machine that was previously
donated by MAIC to Al-Mansour Paediatric Teaching Hospital
(now known as the Children's Welfare Hospital). In addition,
MAIC aims to continue the training programme for doctors
and medical staff this time from Basrah Teaching Hospital.
are also many other projects under consideration for
the coming year. Most important among them are lists
of urgent medical requests from paediatric hospitals
in Iraq that were recently sent to MAIC. We hope that
the charity will raise sufficient funds to enable us
to sponsor them.
look to 2006 with hope and pray for peace and reconciliation
among the Iraqi people. We wish you all a happy and
prosperous New Year.

OF IRAQI DOCTORS AT UK HOSPITALS
panel of speakers and experts at MAIC's Forum on 'Health
of Children in Iraq' held in London on 3 May 2005.
2005, MAIC continued to asses its role in providing
humanitarian aid to the children of Iraq. While MAIC
believes its main mission of sending aid in the form
of medicines and medical equipment is crucial, through
dialogue with doctors in Iraq the charity has identified
new needs. In response to increasing requests from doctors,
some of whom have been working for the charity for 10
years, MAIC has recently launched a new training programme
for doctors from Iraq.
programme aims to sponsor Iraqi doctors for short term
training at UK hospitals in order to update their skills
and exchange ideas with their British colleagues. Five
doctors spent 4-5 weeks training in hospitals throughout
the UK. The hospitals were the NHS and Social Care Trust
in West Kent, the Maudsley Hospital in London, the Great
Ormond Street Hospital, the Chelsea and Westminster
Hospital and the Northampton General Hospital.
Abdul Kareem Salman Alobedi became the first doctor
to benefit from MAIC's program. Dr Alobedi is a consultant
psychiatrist at the Central Paediatric Teaching Hospital
in Baghdad and the Chairman of the Iraqi Association
for Child Mental Health. He spent one month training
at the Northampton General Hospital in March 2005. His
particular training program consisted of lectures, workshops
and attending therapy sessions with both parents and
childen in both a hospital and community setting. During
his training, he was also able to hold discussions with
the doctors at the hospital to explore setting up links
between the Iraqi Association for Child Mental Health
and the International Institute for Child and Adolescent
Mental Health and Child and Adolescent and Family Services
both in Northampton Hospital. Dr Alobedi feels he has
gained a deeper understanding of child and adolescent
mental health care, which he is pleased to relay to
his colleagues back in Iraq.
then, more doctors have also benefited from our programme,
including MAIC member Dr Hussein Malik, a paediatric
surgeon at the Central Paediatric Teaching Hospital;
Dr Ali Hameed Rashid, a neuropsychiatrist at
Yarmouk Teaching Hospital; Dr Said Nouri Al-Hashimi,
consultant psychiatrist at Yarmouk Teaching Hospital
and teacher in psychiatry at Al-Mustansiriya University,
Ghazwan Al-Badawi, a consultant paediatrician from
the Central Paediatric Teaching Hospital in Baghdad,
and recently a Director of the Children's Welfare Hospital
in Baghdad, trained at the NHS and Social Care Trust
in West Kent. Through his training, he explored further
the specific role of paediatricians in treating child
and adolescent mental health, as well as improving his
clinical skills. Dr Al-Badawi found the training a 'highly
useful experience for (him) as an Iraqi paediatrician'
and described how he would 'never forget all the people
involved in (his) success in the course.'
would like to particularly thank Mr Jack Piachaud,
a consultant psychiatrist, who helped us raise sponsorship
for their training and place them in UK hospitals. We
would also like to thank Accenture and other generous
donors for their invaluable support for this project.
The total cost of sponsorship per trainee varied between
£1,900 and £3,200, amounting to a total
of £13,000 which covered travel expenses, accommodation
and living expenses. We are also immensely grateful
to the hospitals for providing the training free of
on the success of the last training program, MAIC is
in the process of arranging another short training program
for five doctors and nurses from the paediatric oncology
department at the Basrah Teaching Hospital. The group
of five health professionals includes a biologist, orthopaedic
surgeon, haematologist and two paediatric nurses. MAIC
is grateful to Karim Rida Said Foundation (KRSF) for
its pledge to sponsor their training. MAIC is currently
looking to find UK hospitals willing to accept the health
professionals as observers for one month's training
ON THE HEALTH OF CHILDREN IN IRAQ
held a Forum on the Health of Children in Iraq at the
Royal Geographical Society in London on 3rd May 2005.
This was an opportunity for doctors working in Iraq
to share their experiences and discuss the current health
situation and how the war and sanctions have influenced
the diseases they encounter. The panel was moderated
by Mr Robert Mabro CBE, a MAIC trustee and included
four speakers: Dr Hussein Malik and Dr Ali Rasheed,
who benefited from our short term training programme,
Dr Jawad Khadem Al-Ali, consultant oncologist at Basrah
Teaching Hospital, and Ms Lindsay Hillsum Channel 4
News International Editor.
Hussein Malik described how poor nutrition, a decline
in educational enrolment and attendance, unhealthy lifestyles,
high numbers of deaths from accidents and violence,
and deterioration of preventative health programmes
have contributed to the decline in the health of the
Iraqi children. Poverty, poor sanitation and lack of
uncontaminated water supplies have further added to
this. Although since 1990 communicable diseases have
not reached endemic proportions, infectious diseases
remain the main cause of death in children, with acute
respiratory tract infections and diarrhoeal diseases
accounting for most of these. Dr Malik also noted an
increase in typhoid, measles and mumps amongst the cases
also reminded us that Iraq used to have one of the best
health services in the region, but believes that budget
cuts, neglect and poor management over the last fifteen
years have taken their toll on health services. This
is further compounded by the fact that training of health
professionals was neglected and professionals were academically
isolated from the outside world and so unable to improve
medical practice. Dr Malik also described the need,
following the recent war, to renovate and develop damaged
and looted medical buildings, rebuild infrastructure,
re-organise the pharmaceutical sector and eliminate
drugs shortage, training medical staff and tackle the
main causes of communicable and other diseases. He concluded
by saying that there has been significant progress made
recently, with the rehabilitation and reopening of seventy
five hospitals and nearly all primary care clinics that
were damaged or looted in the war. In addition, public
health programs have been re-established and national
immunisation programmes organised.
Jawad Khadem Al-Ali talked about the effects of
post-war environmental contamination on health in Iraq.
He described how the drying of the marshes in the South
and chemical contamination in the form of depleted uranium,
used in the recent wars, have affected the environment
and changed the spectrum of diseases seen in Basrah,
where he works. Dr Al-Ali found increased rates of cancers,
particularly leukaemia in children, increased rates
of birth defects, changes in the pattern of cancer presentation,
and the appearance of uncommon phenomenon, such as familial
cancer clustering and double and triple cancers in one
patient. Moreover, the shortages in treatment and nursing
care have aggravated the problems.
Ali Hameed Rashid spoke about the effects of war
on the mental health of Iraqi Children. He described
the results of studies he and his colleagues conducted
in Iraq, examining the many different ways in which
Iraqi children are exposed to traumatic experience.
These experiences include the death from armed conflict
of one or both parents, siblings, other relatives, and
friends, especially where death was witnessed by the
child. Direct and indirect exposure to traumatic events,
such as car bombs, forced evacuations from family homes
and cities, abductions and other violent experiences
lead to severe and disabling psychological damage. The
continuous exposure to trauma, along with other factors
such as, the absence of qualified mental health aid,
escalation of the violence, the poor understanding and
handling of their psychological problems at home and
school and the absence of psychosocial support has made
traumatic disorders in children not only more widespread
but also more severe.
Lindsay Hillsum, Channel 4 news International Editor,
also spoke of her experiences in Iraq at the event.
She described numerous moving stories of people she
had encountered during her visits in Iraq; stories of
heroism and tragedy.
would like to take this opportunity to thank all those
who spoke at the Forum and who came to support the event
in particular our experts on the panel: Professor William
Yule, Director of the Child Traumatic Stress Clinic,
Maudsley Hospital, London as well as Dr Penelope Brock,
Consultant Paediatric Oncologist at Great Ormond Street
would also like to thank the International Arab Council
Charities Fund (IAC) for generously sponsoring the event
and all our kind donors who made this event possible.

miles beginning in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, coursing through
Gateshead and ending at South Shields on the coast.
Ms Najwan Al-Saad said this event was an immense challenge
for her: 'Running is not my forte, but I couldn't find
a better source of motivation to improve my capabilities
than training for a cause I feel passionate about.'
Mr Ali Latif said 'running this half-marathon is the
least I can do to help the most needy and vulnerable
section of Iraqi society, the children'. 'It was harder
than I thought it would be,' explained Mr Khalid Ali,
'but somehow I managed to complete the 13.1 miles stretching
from right outside my front door in Newcastle, where
I'm a 4th year medical student, to the coast at South
the day after, every muscle in my
body was aching and I couldn't even walk properly. But
it was definitely worth it. I would encourage anyone
who is thinking of running next year for Medical Aid
for Iraqi Children to definitely do it, as not only
is it for a fantastic cause, it is an amazing experience
you will never forget.' MAIC is extremely grateful to
our runners, who in total raised over £3267. If
you are interested in running the BUPA Great North Run
September 2006, please contact Maya Al-Memar at: email@example.com
