Providing Emergency Medical Care

In over a decade of war there have been over 600 attacks on health care facilities, ambulances and medical staff have occurred within Syria, killing 930 healthcare workers. With dangerous working conditions and directly targeted systematic attacks, very few healthcare professionals have remained in Syria. 18 hospitals and healthcare facilities in Northwest Syria are reducing their operations due to a lack of funding. However, the medical needs of Syrians are rising. 

To address this, we have developed a far-reaching medical aid programme, which continues to be one of our largest operations, running 24 hospitals and healthcare centres across the north of Syria. As well as providing emergency care to victims of the conflict, we also offer regular medical care for chronic illnesses, vaccination, and mental health support.

Sufyan suffered a head injury when a bomb hit his home in Idlib. His mother rushed him to a Syria Relief hospital where he was quickly seen to by our medical staff. After his operation, Sufyan regularly attended our Primary Healthcare Centre where his scars were routinely checked, and his bandages were changed. We monitored Sufyan’s condition until his full recovery. Without immediate medical attention from Syria Relief, Sufyan’s head injury would have been life-threatening.

Your donation can give children like Sufyan the lifeline they so desperately need. 

Our healthcentres offer treatment to patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and asthma, as well as treating those with acute illness.
