mission 1 cases and numbers




Our team felt helpless in the face of the massive devastation brought upon by the war in Syria, the significant human toll and unspeakable suffering, and the effects of the protracted refugee crisis on Syrians and host communities. We sought to collaborate with a global relief organization as part of a medical mission, and work on the ground to provide medical care to refugee and underserved host populations in Lebanon, in the region of Tripoli and Akkar.

The doctors on the team are specialized in emergency medicine, internal medicine, cardiology, and pediatrics. They practice in different academic and community centers in New York, Colorado and Texas.
