ReHUB | Alessandro Annunziata

The Teresa Rehabilitation Centre in Sulaymaniyah, Iraq, is a rehabilitation centre run by local and international staff of the Italian Emergency NGO.

In the centre, prostheses of any type are built to measure, and patients are followed in their path of learning the use of prosthetics. Specialized staff, who for years now works for the NGO, follow the patients step by step. People come from all over the Iraq and beyond, to be helped. Specifically, when I took these pictures, all the people came from Mosul.

Children, women, elderly and some young soldiers of the Iraqi army live together for several days, inside the guest house in the centre, waiting for the doctor to be helped and to come back home, to a new life. Once a year, several workshops are held in the centre to help patients reintegrate into society. Once the seminars are finished, Emergency helps patients to find a store near their home, and by financing the opening and the first months of work, in order to provide sustenance and practical help. ReHUB is an ongoing project, which I will finish in the next few months on my next return to Iraq, and which will also include a visit to Mosul and the refugee camps of the war in Syria.
