Healthnet TPO Healthnet TPO Healthnet TPO

HealthNet TPO is a Dutch aid agency that works on health in areas disrupted by war or disasters. In these areas people are facing the immense task of rebuilding society while they suffer from poverty, diseases and the emotional consequences of conflict. We use ‘health’ as both a goal and means: the goal is to reach accessible health care for all. By working on that together with local communities we use ‘health’ as a means to bring people together and to restore mutual trust.

Giro555 and relief

At this very moment the media in Holland are full of the national week of action Stop the Ebola-disaster. Sounds of confusion on fundraising and spending of the money are heard in the media. The Giro 555 actions are getting more and more mixed publicity: is a tv show really needed? Is the money well spent, and how is it distributed? Quite often people ask Healthnet what we are doing to Ebola or to the Syrian refugee crisis. If we say that our plans are ready but we first have to find the funding, people don’t understand. Giro 555 actions are conducted by the collaborating organizations (SHO), so there should be more than enough money. Why aren’t we doing anything? Do we not want to collaborate? To answer these questions we like to explain our position in relation to the SHO and the Giro 555 actions.

No peace, without peace of mind!

Every day we are confronted with images of unimaginable numbers of refugees in Syria, Iraq, the Central African Republic, the people suffering from the ebola-epidemic and others in known or forgotten crisis in our world. It seems an endless stream of women, men and children: how are the able to continue their lives after the loss of loved ones and with trust and safety being destroyed?

From the start of 2014, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq received 860.000 Iraqi Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who fled violence and unrest. These people joined the over 200,000 IDPs from earlier waves of violence since 2003, and over 200,000 refugees from Syria. The Kurdistan Regional Government, the United Nations, the humanitarian community and, last but not least, the people of the Kurdistan region are facing enormous challenges to meet basic needs. The IDPs are widely dispersed, mobile and in great need. And winter is coming.
