As people are being starved in Madaya and other besieged areas in Syria, our doctors and nurses are distributing the scarce food to their patients first.
During the month of Ramadan, as vicious airstrikes, phosphorus, and cluster bombs continue to hit Aleppo, Hama, and other cities across Syria, our medical personnel are rushing out as fast as they can to save lives and alleviate suffering.
As families are torn apart and uprooted, our medical personnel are providing psychological support to children and adults to help them heal from the effects of trauma, even though some of these heathcare providers have not seen their families for months.
Eid is about family, tolerance, and connecting with the entire community.
Join us in our mission to ensure that our medical personnel are not left behind and that they are protected and their families are supported. It is the gift of giving. Eid mubarak!
Ahmad Tarakji, MD
