UOSSM USA launched a fundraiser to support the new Medical Mobile Unit for Al-Shayah Farms in southern Syria. This mobile clinic has the potential to provide medical care to an estimated 19,000 internally displaced people, half of which are children, in Al-Shayah Farms in southern Syria!
But for the project to be a success UOSSM USA needs your support.. There are so many costs associated with the mobile clinic that are not yet funded including purchasing of pharmaceutical medications/supplies, equipment and life insurance policies for staff who will be risking their lives to provide these medical services.
