Humans of Kurdistan
The "Humans Of Kurdistan" project aims to present the cultural diversity of the country. A look at the faces but also the stories that lie behind each of them.

“I started medical work in Amed in 2012. I now work in a children’s clinic in the newborns department. At the same time, I lead the Amed Doctors Union. All over the world and in Kurdistan as well, a doctor’s work is not just being a doctor, because it is not just treating someone’s health. We fight for human rights as well.
This job has its own difficulties. It’s true that it used to be very difficult, but it has increased even more now. Health departments in Kurdistan are currently under a lot of crises and issues.
The Coronavirus was the most difficult for us and the problems are always on the rise. Health department workers used to work a lot, but the number of patients recently increased due to the Coronavirus, and their work increased along with that. We used to do one job, but now it’s two jobs and our work keeps increasing.”
