Responding to the crisis facing the Christian minority community in general, and the displaced persons in particular, the Chaldean Archbishop Bashar Warda launched several healthcare institutions, including the St. Joseph Charity Clinic (SJCC), a non-profit day clinic.

Launched in summer 2014, SJCC provides continuous medical care and medications to around 3,000 patients suffering from different chronic diseases.  To provide complete medical support, Saint Joseph Charity Clinic needs to dispense medications worth over USD 90,000 per month.

Located in Erbil’s Ankawa, the clinic is completely operated by volunteers, mainly by three sisters from the Sisters of the Holy Cross from India and around 15 local doctors and pharmacists who are motivated by a spirit of service.
