Who are we?

Elise Care is an NGO providing emergency medical aid to civilian populations living in conflict zones.

Expert in the treatment of pain, EliseCare is a non-governmental organization of international solidarity recognized in the general interest since December 17, 2015. Apolitical and secular, its main vocation is to provide emergency medical aid to the civilian populations living in conflict zones.

In 2011, conflicts worsened in Syria, then in 2014 in Iraq. To respond to the remoteness of displaced and refugee populations from medical centers and their impossible access to healthcare, EliseCare created mobile clinics using old buses.

Traveling the roads of Iraq, and after assessment of needs, these buses provide regular care to populations of all specialties combined: general medicine, gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, pregnancy monitoring, postpartum care, psychology, pain treatment and acupuncture.

Traveling the roads of Iraq, and after assessment of needs, these buses provide regular care to populations of all specialties combined: general medicine, gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, pregnancy monitoring, postpartum care, psychology, pain treatment and acupuncture. Located near Zakho and Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan, they offer permanent access to healthcare for people who cannot return to their region of origin.

The mission of these dispensaries is threefold:

  • Provide free consultations and care
  • Allow psychological monitoring of patients
  • Offer access to medical training (acupuncture training, first aid, gynecology, radiology, biology)

Our values ​​of solidarity, respect, and global care guide our daily actions. Because everyone has the right to respect, dignity and access to care.

Elise Care today

Given the urgency and the scale of the humanitarian crisis, EliseCare is currently developing numerous projects:

  • In Iraq, our 3 mobile clinics run through 30 isolated sites and provide more than 2,000 free treatments each month.
  • In the Ainkawa 2 and Darkar camps, respectively in the provinces of Erbil and Duhok, EliseCare has built 2 fixed dispensaries to provide free and constant care.
  • The Survivors’ Center, made up of several fixed and mobile antennas, is a medico-psychosocial center for women and children who have survived the horrors of war and Daesh.
  • The mobile clinic has been sent to Aleppo and will soon start operating.
  • Another mobile clinic is planned for Eastern Ghouta, a region in Syria where humanitarian needs are great.
