May Al-Daftari

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 more children.

2005 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.

Training 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 working groups.

MAIC 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.

Our 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.

There 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.

We 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.

A panel of speakers and experts at MAIC's Forum on 'Health of Children in Iraq' held in London on 3 May 2005.

In 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.

The 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.

Dr 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.

Since 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, Baghdad.

Dr 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.'

MAIC 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 charge.

Based 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 in 2006.


MAIC 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.

Dr 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 he sees.

He 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.

Dr 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.

Dr 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.

Ms 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.

MAIC 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 Hospital, London.

MAIC 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.

MAIC is grateful to five runners who entered the annual BUPA Great North Run in support of MAIC. MAIC is proud to announce that the runners, Mr. Hassan Haboubi, Mr. Ali Latif, Mr. Ian Davies, Mr. Khalid Ali and Ms Najwan Abu Al-Saad, completed the run, which was held on Sunday 18th September 2005. The course was a gruelling 13.1 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 Shields……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 in
September 2006, please contact Maya Al-Memar at:
