Hudson nurse returns from treating victims of battle in Mosul
Maranatha Weeks, a Montreal-area nurse, has returned from the embattled Iraqi city of Mosul, where she served as a nurse supervisor at an emergency field hospital.
During her month-long stay in Iraq, Weeks was working with the Samaritan’s Purse Organization.
Mosul is the last major stronghold in Iraq held by the so-called Islamic State group (ISIS).
The Iraqi military captured the eastern sector of the city in January of this year. The fighting has displaced tens of thousands.
