Description: Six years have passed since the conflict began in Syria.
Being a doctor in Syria is very difficult and comes with many risks. there are always air raids, bombings, and lack of proper medical equipment.
These are the struggles that Doctor Moheeb has been dealing with since the crisis began in Syria. He has seen so many traumatic injuries and situations, but still continues to help patients. When he says a patient recover, it's a happiness for him that he can't describe.
Please help the people of Syria.

Description: Access basic health care is one of the major concerns of the over 3 million refugees in Turkey. While emergency hospital treatment in Turkey is free of charge, many Syrian and refugees are reluctant to use these facilities due to language and cultural barriers. Many local health facilities are also struggling to cope with the influx of refugee patients. The EU and other donors are addressing this issue by providing financial support to primary or migrant health centres which have been set up by local and international NGOs.
Among the refugees, many Syrian health professionals have also been able to find employment in these health centers; this is much appreciated by the refugees who feel more comfortable being treated by Arab speaking doctors and nurses. The EU has also promoted the employment of Syrian medical personnel through a training program carried by the World Health Organisation (WHO). This training allows Syrian doctors to understand the rules and regulations governing the medical profession in Turkey and allows them to defer their patients to Turkish health facilities correctly and effectively.
With a grant of €2 million from the EU Facility for Refugees in Turkey, WHO has already trained some one thousand Syrian doctors, nurses and translators, providing a vital service to the refugee community.

Description: Throughout Northern Syria MSF has witnessed the impact of mines, booby traps and explosive remnants of war on the civilian population through its medical activities.
Not only the extensive use of explosive weapons during the hostilities, including bombs dropped from aircraft, but the widespread planting of mines, and booby traps including in private homes, fields and civilian infrastructure are having a devastating effect on civilians returning to their homes or trying to escape a warzone.
Given the limited local capacity to clear these areas and make them safe again, it will also affect their lives and livelihoods in the long term. MSF calls on the international community to significantly step up their support to international demining organisations to increase their activities in northern Syria.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.
