Prenatal Care Project
IMANA initiated a prenatal care program with partner organization MA’AN Aid and Development by providing funds for prenatal care services through delivery. One hundred expectant mothers from the Syrian refugee population were enrolled in the program; these women do not hold refugee cards and thus are unable to access any public healthcare facilities or pay for care and exams at private clinics. The program welcomed the first baby to be born from these services in December 2022. As a loving gesture, the parents named their daughter. Imana in appreciation of the care the mother was able to receive. A total of 220 expectant mothers have been registered in the program since its establishment in 2022.
Autistic Children Project
IMANA began a partnership with Ensar Charity Association to provide care to Syrian refugee children at a facility in Sanliurfa, with treatments such as autism intervention and physiotherapy for cerebral palsy, cerebral atrophy, paralysis and spinal cord injuries as well as health education
for women. A total of 44 cases were registered till the end of the year for long term treatment and care. It’s truly heartening to see the positive impact that our partnership has had on the lives of Syrian refugee children. We believe that every child deserves the best possible care and opportunities, and we will continue to work towards achieving that goal. A total of 503 cases were registered till the end of December 2023.
Following the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in 2023, IMANA provided grants that helped to support local mobile emergency centers and child nutrition supplies for 663 families for four refugee camps in Sanliurfa.
