Gagjali, a Hospital on the Frontline
Mosul
By Cosimo Attanasio
13 Jan 2017

The village of Gagjali (or Godjalih) in Iraq is a suburb of Mosul, awfully close to the front line. Equally inhabited by Arabs and Kurds, both ethnic groups lived in peace until the arrival of Daesh. Every day arriving there, by foot or by some fortune vehicles, many families fleeing war directed towards the nearby refugee camps, stopping for a short rest. In the village, there is also a small hospital run by American volunteers of a Slovak N.G.O., Academy of Emergency Medicines, young guys which provide first aid services to those in need: civilian and military alike. Their work is terrible and grueling; the hospital is nothing more than an abandoned house. Often the first-aid workers must work without proper supplies, in particular, the lack of blood for transfusions. Lack of blood is the main reason for deaths in the hospital. A.E.M. is a small N.G.O. with few resources and they don't have a refrigerator where to store blood, once the injured begin to bleed it is over. Children are the hardest patients to treat because of their low threshold of pain that makes them move all the time and for their physical frailty. Once rescued, people are transported by ambulance to the nearest available and better-equipped hospital. The local economy is almost nonexistent, just a shepherd and a  young boy who sells tea and snacks to foreign journalists.
