Everyone Deserves Basic Healthcare

Endless Medical Advantage is the only Syrian led mobile health clinic in Lebanon. We are currently working across the western and central areas of the Bekaa Valley. The latest estimates suggest that 339,000 Syrian refugees are currently living in the Bekaa valley, approximately 70% of them report lack of access to basic healthcare due to financial constraints (UNHCR figures October 2018).

Since EMA was established in October 2018, we have treated over 1,500 patients in the Bekaa valley. We have also provided health and well-being training to over 300 refugee children in local schools and an orphanage, as well as first aid training sessions within the camps. The EMA mobile health clinic provides regular, affordable, and accessible healthcare to 13 camps in the Al Marj and Saadnayel areas (approximately 3,500 people). Since it's creation the EMA has treated patients of all ages, with conditions ranging from infectious diseases to pneumonia; burns; heart disease; urine infections; and the common cold. All services and the medications necessary to treat them are heavily subsidised by EMA.

In a population with limited access to healthcare services, primary healthcare and  health education with basic first aid skills are essential. Without your continued support, our work in Bekaa would be impossible. We are looking for ongoing support to expand our clinic across the area and develop our public health promotion work, working with both adults and children from the local camps. We would like to provide more extensive first aid and basic life support training sessions within the camps, empowering the women of the camps to manage the immediate needs of people with minor illnesses and ailments.

This organisation is founded and presided by Dr Hadia Aslam (a UK based General practice doctor and Consultant in Refugee health care services), directed by Dr Feras Al Ghadban (a Syrian doctor, currently based in the Beqaa valley, Lebanon), and Ms Asma Patel from London UK (a humanitarian, managing operations on the ground in the Bekaa valley) to treat the needs of this vulnerable population.
 
A contribution to this organisation will support our Syrian ground staff in the purchasing of basic medical supplies, medications, maintenance of the vehicle, as well as the provision of professional development training. Any funds kindly donated to this project will be withdrawn by a member of the EMA core team and used to finance the running of the project on the ground in Lebanon.
 
This project has been established to deliver front line support in one of the worlds most troubled and disrupted environments.  Every contribution will count and help in the effort to restore decent health care provision to a vulnerable population. For our latest updates, visit our facebook page .
