After months of refused entry, Doctors Without Borders decided to go into Syria without government authorization so we could deliver lifesaving medical care to men, women, and children caught in the crossfire of war.
Our medical teams have had to be flexible, working in secret and changing locations as the frontlines shift. We’ve set up field surgical hospitals in unlikely places – including a small cave where doctors performed more than 100 surgeries over six weeks before moving operations to a farm.
The situation in Syria remains dire, and thousands of people still have nowhere to turn for urgently needed medical care. Since June, Doctors Without Borders teams have treated more than 10,000 patients and performed more than 900 surgeries. We are also delivering care to thousands of Syrian refugees who fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. Your financial support makes this possible.
Donate now to join Doctors Without Borders on the frontlines in 2013.
Together we can save more lives in some of the most remote and dangerous places in the world.
