Disaster Update: Syrian War Enters 4th Year

by User Not Found | Mar 18, 2014

Thank you for your support of our Syrian refugee relief program.  Thanks to you, Syrian families in desperate need can receive care during this time of conflict and uncertainty.

Your generous donations have shipped 10 Intra-Agency Emergency Health Kits and 10 major surgery kits to Lebanon - enough medical supplies to serve up to 100,000 refugees.  You have also sent a 40-foot container of medical supplies to provide for up to 25,000 refugees in Jordan.

Yet the need continues to be great. The Syrian Civil War enters its 4th year this month, and nearly 2.5 million displaced Syrians are enduring yet another harsh winter in refugee camps. Syrian refugees are without access to healthcare.  According to a recent report by UNICEF, 1.2 million Syrian children are refugees in need of humanitarian aid.

If you haven't yet, watch our video that takes you inside the settlements of Syrian refugees where Medical Teams International is providing care.
Thank you for your generosity and commitment to demonstrate the love of Christ to Syrian refugees in need. Your support sends these critical supplies to the most urgent situations around the world, where refugees are dependent on the generosity of people like you.
