On 13 January 2017, the President of the Kurdish-European Society Kahraman Evsen gave a speech during an information event of the Kurdish-European Medical Students Association (KEMSA) at the Freie Universität of Berlin. He welcomed the work of KEMSA and promised to support them with their projects. In his address, he underlined the importance of independent Kurdish organizations working in the European diaspora, networking and closely cooperating with other organisations on common goals. Only in this way could the Kurds in Europe and Kurdistan could effectively be helped.
Prof. Dr. Ammann from the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences also gave a lecture on the recent Kurdish immigration history to Europe and the pediatrician Dr. Shalah Faraj gave a presentation on a medical topic. Some 30 participants attended the event, for which KEMSA had provided a rich buffet of Kurdish food.
KEMSA is a non-profit, non-partisan and Europe-wide organization that was founded in 2012 in the Czech Republic. The aim of KEMSA is to bring Kurdish medicine students in Europe together and do networking. In addition, the association wishes to serve as a bridge between Kurdistan and Europe. For this purpose, it organizes for instance internships in Kurdistan and Europe.
