Device Donations for Syrian Relief

Donated Medical Devices for Syrian Relief
Events of the past year in Syria have saddened and horrified caring people around the world. Among the many troubling issues to emerge from the conflict has been the government’s denial of medical treatment – or outright killing of those seeking medical care – whatever their affiliation.  For the many refugees fleeing the conflict, medical equipment and material are in extremely short supply in the camps and field hospitals that have been established in Turkey and Jordan.
