Libya Relief 5

Dear Brothers and Sisters

Assalamu Alaikum!

The military conflict for control of Libya continues unabated with daily casualties added to the health burden of the region. As many as 10,000 civilians are feared dead with many more severely injured. The remaining hospitals, not destroyed or damaged in the bombings on both the Eastern and Western regions, are struggling if not already crippled by this daily influx of serious and often complicated injuries. These hospitals are compromised by the following challenges:

· Desertion of medical staff including nursing

· Medical and surgical consumables have been exhausted

· Medical equipment and instruments need replacing or upgrading

· No relief for remaining health professionals working under appalling conditions

Our local partners in the region, Arab Medical Union (AMU) in collaboration with IMA Egypt have performed courageously under extreme and dangerous conditions providing humanitarian relief and health care to the displaced populations on the respective borders as well as the injured fleeing the troubled region or support for their colleagues in Libya. Prof Aly Mishal, FIMA Executive Director, recently visited the region and met with the various role players. They propose continuing this noble work in the following projects:

1. Libyan casualties treated in Egyptian hospitals: these casualties are often very serious and complicated requiring specialist care and supervision. AMU has sponsored the treatment of 50 injured Libyans at an estimated cost of 260,000 USD.

2. Medications for the local population inside Libya who suffer from chronic illnesses (heart conditions, hypertension, diabetes and other chronic illness). Medications for such conditions have been exhausted and will cost  1,100,000 USD to replace.

3. Care of Libyan casualties inside Libya:

a. Eastern provinces, near the Egyptian borders: medical teams, transport, consumables, instruments and medications will cost approx. 450,000 USD

b. Western provinces, Misurata and the regions near the Tunisians borders: estimated cost  of 75,000 USD.

4. Sending medical teams (doctors, nurses and technicians) to work in Libyan hospitals, which are suffering from continuous desertion of medical manpower. Estimated cost 373,000 USD.

Dear FIMA members, we are morally and ethically obliged to assist our brothers working in these regions. We can assist in any of the following manners:

· Collecting and transporting medicines, supplies, consumables and instruments to the region

· Organizing specialist surgical medical missions to assist our colleagues in the various parts of the troubled region

· Starting a collection drive to assist our brothers financially in containing and covering these costs, an estimated 2,500,000USD is urgently required!

FIMA and member IMAs and collaborating relief NGOs are called upon to collaborate and compliment AMU efforts in these ongoing projects:

  • Medical manpower could be delegated for various periods. AMU is ready to receive these missions and provide logistic support
  • Sending donations for any of the 4 projects: This could be done by sending your contributions to the following AMU Account:

Beneficiary: Arab Medical Union

Bank: FAISAL BANK- 26 July Branch

Account number: 212051

Swift code: FIEGEGCXCAI

A combined relief committee has been formed, composed of reps of AMU and IMA-Egypt. Please contact either of them directly or myself for any information, coordination or any other support:

Dear Brothers and Sisters

 

FIMA Relief – Libya 4


Mercy Malaysia has a team in Libya and we had feedback that the hospitals are very short of nurses. 1,200 nurses left the country including doctors and medical technicians.

 

The specialty that are most needed are neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons,
anaesthesiologists and physicians.

 

The most badly affected hospital is Al Beyda General Hospital since it is catering for 3
cities with a population of about 500,000 people. Al Beyda hospital is less equipped compared to Benghazi Hospital.

 

Mercy Malaysia would be deploying more volunteers soon.

Libya Relief 2

10 March 2011

FIMA Members

Dear Brothers and Sisters

Assalamu Alaikum!

Libya has been driven into a bloody battle bordering on civil war between the warring factions of ordinary civilians seeking freedom from oppression and corruption and the security forces of a callous dictator. Thousands are feared dead and many thousands more injured during these unrelenting skirmishes. Foreign migrant workers were the first to flee this territory with an estimated 210 000 crossing the Libyan borders into Egypt, Tunisia and Niger. Recent reports from our partners in IMANA and DWW have confirmed that the western borders are currently stable and well resourced to manage the fleeing refugees most of whom are repatriated immediately. There is no immediate need of any emergency aid to this region.

However, the eastern border is very different: Arab Medical Union (AMU) have been very busy in the region attending to the serious  injuries of the numerous casualties of these battles. They urgently require our support to fund the following urgent activities:

  • Sustaining the required number of medical staff for next 3-6 months:  50 - 60 doctors of different specialties and 300 nurses of different specialties
  • Providing a group of medical engineering technicians to fix any problems with the medical devices and equipment
  • Travelling of 15 medical consultants in different specialties for 1 week every 3 months
  • Providing the very urgent medical supplies and then providing the basic needs of medical supplies for all hospitals & the least urgent until the situation in the west is stabilized
  • The very urgent medical supplies would cost 150, 000 US dollars and the basic medical supplies would cost 300,000 US dollars
  • Providing the required food supplies for approximately 6 month
  • Providing the required psychological support
  • Medical Training of the Libyan doctors & supporting Libyan faculties of medicine

This situation could easily spill over onto the western region when the borders are opened or the security situation improves (Gaddafi’s forces are patrolling the border and preventing any Libyan national to leave the country). In fact, sources on these borders fear that the exodus may approach 1 million when the borders are released.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, our partners operating on the ground under extremely difficult and often hazardous conditions urgently needs our support. They have the personnel capacity to deal with the crisis but require financial assistance to sustain their relief operations in the region. Please open your hearts (and purses) to the innocent victims of this senseless carnage. Donate generously to facilitate their missions and bring relief to the pain and suffering of the injured and displaced families affected by this war.

n And if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole community.(Al-Ma’idah:32)

n Those who spend their wealth in the path of Allah by night and by day, secretly and openly, for them is their reward with their Sustainer. There is neither fear on them nor shall they grieve. (Al-Baqara:262)
