Hundreds of childbirths with disabilities and teenagers struck with cancer
Dear Sir/ Madam
We are the Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq OWFI, I'm Sorry to posted here this article bu I hope you to help us with a huge disaster & human tragedy because of an American base ammunition training contaminates and devastates Haweeja in Iraq we had discover that when an OWFI delegation visited repeatedly the district of Haweeja, west of Kirkuk city in Iraq, to find that the villages have practically turned into contaminated backyards of radioactive waste of the live ammunition operations field of the US base, this is caused a hundreds of childbirths with disabilities and teenagers struck with cancer according to our observations and the initial reports of the medical clinic in the region, noting that the region suffers from a lack of public services, especially medical centers and the lack of specialized health of those diseases.
The view of the living standards of these poor people in this area so this prevent them from going for treatment outside the region because of prohibitive costs.
Can you imagine the birth of a disabled child in each case the birth or death almost every week a child ? also their pain, suffering and disease which these children are suffering.
Within a Haweeja population of 109,000 people, a new disabled generation of infants and children were born with abnormal and under-developed brains, most of whom suffer polio, paralysis and sometimes blindness. The cases registered in the local clinic are 412, while the real numbers add up to more than the 600. Similarly, cancer spreads in all ages, with big numbers among teenagers who currently await their death without any treatment offered by the Iraqi government or the US military which is responsible for the contaminations resulting from their daily live ammunition radiation and emission. The US government continues to grant all the liberty for its military arsenal to practice shelling and explosions in the training field of Haweeja which is only one mile from the homes of families, with no barriers to stop children, sheppards and sheep to walk across in the ammunition training fields.
Most of the disability and cancer cases are in the villages closest to the US base training field, and in the direction of the wind, i.e. south of the field, such as Al Kubeyba, Al Hamdouniya, Al Aatshana and Hor Al Sufun. For example, Al Kubeyba village has a population of 1400 people - out of whom 21 cases were diagnosed with cancer. 3 have recently died while 18 are awaiting their destiny desperately with no hope of being provided treatment or medication by the authorities who should be held accountable.
we are not a medical specialists but we are human whom can't just stand & watch those kids suffering & dying that way.
OWFI hopes to get help from international organizations to help reduce the sufferings of the people of Haweeja. We urge you to stand with us and help whatever you can do, and we are thankful and grateful for your cooperation with us.
any suggestion will be welcome.
Note : A one-child can be holds two offers of diseases or even more
