Nour clinic is the place where Syrian refugees receive medical care in Istanbul’s historic Fatih district.

The clinic managed by Dr Mehdi Davut, started as an ad-hoc operation run by a single doctor.

It has evolved into a primary healthcare clinic that sprawls across three floors. It boasts several specialist departments, a blood analysis lab, and a pharmacy.

Dr Davut told Al Jazeera that in all, 29 doctors, along with their support staff, work here in shifts. All of them are Syrian, and Dr Davut stresses that all are professionals.

“All doctors, nurses, pharmacists and lab technicians working here have accredited and translated credentials, and they have certificates of experience. We don’t just hire anybody.”
