Polish people’s assistance to war-devastated Syria is bringing tangible results – hospitals in western Aleppo and Idlib are provided with support through the Polish Medical Mission.
We have received a moving video footage prepared by Syrian doctors who had just received ultrasound machines the purchase of which we financed with funds handed over by individuals. We invite you to watch this video, which is available at our YouTube channel:
Since December 2016, we have been working directly with the Syrian Balsam Medical Organization whose doctors operate at 2 hospitals, 3 health-care points and 2 small first-aid points in Syria. Acc. to the data received from Dr Mansur, the work coordinator for the organisation Balsam Medical, during the two weeks of the most intensive attacks, there were 519 patients staying at the both hospitals and the medical stations, of whom 352 were refugees from Aleppo. They have infected wounds from gunshots and mutilations from collapsed buildings. There is a shortage of general anaesthetics, antibiotics and dressings. A lot of general surgery operations are performed, most of which are amputations, mainly among children. The cost of purchasing prostheses is more than the Syrian hospitals and the children’s families can afford. In 2017, PMM supplied a total of PLN 120,000 worth of medicines, antibiotics and anaesthetics to hospitals in Syria, as well as two ultrasound machines.
