Two women from Denmark send medical aid to Rojava

Two Kurdish women who live in Denmark, one cardiologist and one nurse, started an initiative in fall which they called “Kurdiske læger og sygeplejersker initiativet” (Kurdish doctors and nurses initiative) and aimed to send modern medical equipment to hospitals in Rojava Kurdistan. As they are practitioners of medicine themselves, they know how dire results can come out of a lack of equipment. Cardiologist Zeynep Binici Çetinkaya and Specialist Nurse Gül Özcan conducted a pre-research on the matter and thought long and hard about what they could do for the hospitals in Rojava.
