What may look like a construction site, is now rapidly becoming a maternity and paediatric hospital. Being constructed by the UK based AMAR Foundation, this new hospital will open next June and will be the only one of it’s kind in the whole of the Shat Al Arab region. 

According to AMAR's Robert Cole, the hospital is located "In an area of Iraq with appalling infant mortality rates" and having direct access to medical facilities, will ultimately save the lives of both mother and child. 

According to Maternity Worldwide, "Figures from the World Health Organisation show, maternal haemorrhage was the third most likely cause of death for women in low income countries, accounting for 58,000 deaths". The construction of AMAR's new hospital, will help play a role in reversing these numbers.
