Emergency Life Support for Civilian War Victims 

We are an Italian NGO whose aim is to give surgical assistance to the civilian victims of war and landmines. For our surgical centres we therefore require surgeons with experience in war surgery and orthopaedics, nurses and anaesthesiologists with experience in ICU and Emergency, physiotherapists mainly dealing with orthopaedic orientated work.

Our on-going Projects at the moment are:
Surgical Centre for Civilian War Victims, Erbil, North Iraq
Surgical Centre for Civilian war Victims, Sulaimanya, North Iraq
Rehabilitation Centre for Civilian War Victims, Sulaimanya, North Iraq
Surgical Centre for Civilian War Victims, Battambang, Cambodia
Surgical Centre for Civilian War Victims, Anobah, North Afghanistan

Now, we are looking for medical staff for missions to the countries where we operate and I hope than you can help me in this research spreading this message to the members of the association for example.

For info our surgeons are usually salaried according to their experience and we have the best insurance. I do thank you for your help and/or suggestions in advance.
