THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF RED CROSS AND RED CRESCENT SOCIETIES CONTINUES ITS VISITING NURSES PROGRAM IN THE DARNAGUL IDPs COLLECTIVE CENTER

The refugee issue has been a vital one for a few years. There are a lot of projects being implemented to improve the living conditions of the people who found themselves being deprived of the basic things. But the most important one remains to be the project aimed at helping the group of people that can hardly take care of themselves without someones assistance.

We are talking about the elderly living alone who are regarded as the most vulnerable group of IDPs. It were them who the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies chose as the target of the Visiting Nurses Program in the IDPs Collective Center. The program has been carried out since May, 1999 jointly with the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society, embracing 100 elderly people living in the Darnagul IDPs Collective Center in Binagade district of Baku City. The center unifies 16 dormitories, which became shelter for 11,000 IDPs.

For people like Adigiya Aliyeva, 66, who has been suffering from bronchial asthma and arthritis for 15 years, medical support and social care provided through the Visiting Nurses Program of the AzRC are extremely needed. Having worked as a nurse in Fizuli for a few decades, Adigiya Khanum is now confined to bed and has to depend on the aid and medicines distributed through the program. Adigiya Khanum is completely lonely. She has no one, except for doctors and nurses of the AzRC, to take care of her, says Shura Jabrailova, the nurse visiting her. Therefore, Roselyne Mattauer, Head of the Delegation of the Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, visiting the IDPs Collective Center last week, found it necessary to present Adigiya Aliyeva with a wheelchair.

Another case, another grief. Agadiga Veliyeva, 82, is looked after not only by nurses of the AzRC but also by residents of the dormitory. The old woman, who is fully blind, had been living in one of the cold corridors of the dormitory until her neighbors brought a couple of pieces of plywood and built a room for her.

It is worth mentioning that the program could hardly be implemented without donation by the Dutch Red Cross Society.
