Emergency Night Shift
This project aims to provide emergency healthcare for the residents living in 'Camp Moria 2.0' during the night, when there are no other medical staff on site. The night shift clinic is open 6 days per week to adults, teens and children.
In our scabies clinic, we assess patients for scabies and provide appropriate treatment, plus associated services (laundry, showers, new clothes). This is essential as scabies is one of the most frequent dermatological problems in the camp. Kitrinos works in collaboration with other NGOs in order to provide these services. The clinic is currently open during the afternoons, 4 days per week.
Medical Clinic in Chios – Collaboration with Salvamento Maritimo Humanitario
Kitrinos Healthcare collaborates with the NGO Salvamento Maritimo Humanitario in Chios, providing medical volunteers to work in a GP clinic for refugees.
Aside from our ongoing medical projects, we've run numerous non-medical and holistic care projects to help improve the wellbeing and mental health of our patients.
Psychological Support: 'Trauma Tapping'
In collaboration with 'Peaceful Heart Network', we offer an innovative form of physical therapy called 'Trauma Tapping' to improve mental well-being in Camp Moria.
There is a mental health crisis in Camp Moria, with high rates of depression, stress and PTSD, leading to self-harm and suicide attempts, even amongst children. Traditional 'talking therapies' are difficult to implement in the camp setting and can even lead to patients becoming re-traumatised. Instead, we teach stress regulation techniques to both volunteers and refugees, and we have trained volunteers on-site to provide 'Trauma Tapping' to our most vulnerable patients - a technique proven to reduce stress and anxiety and improve symptoms of trauma.
One of the greatest benefits of Trauma Tapping is that it's very simple to learn, meaning that our patients can teach the technique to their friends and family, providing a 'ripple of healing' throughout the Moria community.
