Iraq: burns and trauma

by Luca Catalano Gonzaga

The patients are all standing in line, their names on a waiting list, which allows them to undergo delicate plastic surgery. Whole families accompanied by children visit hospitals in Nasiriyah and remain there entire days, waiting patiently for their turn. There is a palpable deep sense of pain and anguish in the corridors, mixed with the hope that the operation will be able to save the person’s life. Sanitary conditions are limited and only a certain number of burn victims can be treated. So the pace of work is compromised by a backwardness of the hospital system , a reflection of a country that has not known peace for over thirty years. (text by Sebastiano Caputo).
