Treating the Wounded in Syria

Inside Syria, MSF teams are striving to meet the needs of people caught up in the conflict, but restrictions and insecurity prevent the teams from extending our work or gaining an overview of the humanitarian and medical needs in all the affected regions.

Fighting has also displaced people from their homes. The population in one Syrian town where MSF is working has increased to 30,000 people over the last few months. Many of the displaced families are sheltering in schools and public buildings. In one site, MSF teams are providing people with clean water and are evaluating additional relief activities.
In response to the increasing medical needs in Syria and an overall lack of medical supplies, MSF has donated tons of medical and relief items to field hospitals and clinics in Homs, Idlib, Hama, and Deraa governorates and to the Syrian Red Crescent in Damascus.
