Medical care on the Syrian border had completely broken down during the Syrian civil war. NGOs are having significant difficulties providing care given the local security situation. Refugee Relief International conducted four missions on the borders with Lebanon and Turkey to provide medical assistance, medical education and logistical support for pro-Western local medical providers. We found a thoroughly overburdened medical system on the brink of collapse in desperate need of help.

We provided a mix of classroom and practical training for local medics and other medical providers.
