Donate to Help Syrians After the Earthquake
The Syrian British Medical Society (SBMS) -a network of Syrian health professionals in the UK, and beyond- is responding to the earthquake in Northwest Syria with a focus on supporting the medical response. Please donate to our urgent fundraising appeal.
The region in Syria most affected by the earthquake is northwest Syria where a population of more than 4.5 million live; more than 60% are internally displaced and the majority of these are women and children. More than 1 million still live in tented settlements. They have faced military attacks, destruction of hospitals and homes making this, even before the earthquake, the worse humanitarian disaster since WWII.
The death and injury toll continue to rise with thousands expected to be trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings. The number of deaths has exceeded 2000 and the number of injuries is likely to reach more than 100,000. Our colleagues are themselves among the victims. A doctor and his family were confirmed dead under rubble today and dozens of others have serious injuries, have lost loved ones or their homes.
The situation on the ground needs an urgent response given how restricted aid from the international community to this area has been. All donations will be used for northwest Syria given the high needs.
