Shipment packed and ready for Syria

by Emily Crowe | Dec 29, 2016

We are honored to share photos from our recent shipment - over 15,000 pounds of medical supplies for families and victims in Syria's Aleppo province. Our teams are increasing their response to help Syrian refugees as the recent siege of Aleppo has caused even more injuries and deaths. Thanks to your support, this shipment will help many families receive urgently-needed care.

Much-needed donated medical supplies are packed and ready to ship thanks to the hard work of volunteers in our Tigard-based distribution center.

The team works to pack the container as tightly as possible. Soon, these supplies will reach patients in urgent need of support in Aleppo province, Syria.

By the end of the day, over 15,000 pounds of medical supplies were packed and shipped to Syria.
