Challenge

Millions of innocent civilians are in need of medical services, as a result of the conflict. After years of war, much of Syria's medical system is in ruins. The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) Foundation is a global medical relief organization on the front lines of crisis relief. SAMS offers Syrians a lifeline to health, hope and a peaceful tomorrow.

Solution

1) SAMS physiotherapy center provides vital medical services to amputees and patients with neurological diseases, musculo-skeletal disorders and injuries. The center serves about 200 beneficiaries per month. 2) SAMS nursing school nursing school project aims to train and certify 70 nurses through a 3-year training program. Through these projects, SAMS will provide vital services to the victims of conflict, who have suffered immensely from years of war.

Long-Term Impact

SAMS is committed to providing life-saving medical services to every patient in need. In 2017, SAMS provided over 3.5 million medical services, including 3.2 million services inside Syria. The SAMS Foundation saves lives by providing medical relief and healthcare to innocent civilians affected by the Syrian crisis and elsewhere. Achieving this mission would not be possible without the help of generous supporters like yourself.
