Winter is coming: Health challenges for Refugees

As winter gets closer, the challenges for Syrian Refugees increase. The vulnerability of refugees is significant when there are lower temperatures. Their need for health support is critical especially during this season.

Project HOPE works with the most vulnerable groups within the global community. Our program began responding to the Syrian Refugee Crisis since 2013 and has since shipped more than $100 million of donated medicines, helping displaced children, women and men living in refugee camps in Turkey. Now, with millions of refugees seeking aid in Europe, countries like Macedonia are working to provide safe shelter and assistance.

Project HOPE is working with the Ministry of Health and partners in Macedonia to provide medicines and medical supplies to facilities and refugee camps. Our program focuses on providing quality medical care to refugees that are crossing through Macedonia, which is one of the three most impacted Balkan countries involved in the refugee crisis.

We respond to the medical needs of refugees by:

Building the Skills of Local Health Care Workers

Providing Quality Primary Medical Care

Providing Medicines and Supplies

Recently, Project HOPE has delivered 6 shipments of medical products and supplies to the Ministry of Health in Macedonia in total value of more than $285,000.

A critical shipment of vaccines was donated to the Ministry of Health to cover all cleaning staff with Typhoid vaccine, at refugee camps where Project HOPE has been providing health services to the population.

Currently, there are 10 local medical volunteers providing quality primary medical care to refugees. The continuous support of the volunteers has provided opportunities for the Ministry of Health that lacks of medical staff in key health facilities such as the transit centers, were thousands of refugees receive medical care. Through our volunteer's support more than 8,200 patients have received lifesaving care.

As winter arrives, please help us to provide relief to refugees. Your contribution can make a significant change in their well-being. Improving the health of vulnerable people lies at the core of Project HOPE’s mission. With your collaboration Project HOPE can take action to respond to their need of quality health care services during this difficult season.
