Great news: Our shipment of urgently-needed medical supplies just made its way to Syria! We’re partnering with the International Blue Crescent to provide support for war-torn regions. So far, we’ve been able to send nearly $1 million of medicines and health products to health facilities in some of the worst-hit regions in Syria.

Check out photos from one of our deliveries in Syria:

On a recent visit to the only post-operative hospital for Syrians in Turkey, our Humanitarian Advisor Dominic Bowen was able to meet with survivors of conflict in Syria. Nearly all of the survivors he met had suffered life-altering injuries.

As the war rages on in Syria, 40% of health facilities are reporting limited health services because there’s no sustainable source of supplies. Our goal is to keep sending regular shipments into Syria.
