From HHQ: Thinking of fellow healthcare workers in Syria

With the Syrian crisis entering in its fifth year, sadly this country has seen a massive exodus of doctors and nurses.

For those who do remain and work tirelessly, spare a thought for the amazing healthcare workers. Not only do they face significant shortages of medical supplies, medical education and training, but they also have no choice but to work in substandard conditions, often employing unorthodox methods to do their work. Thank you to the amazing Syrian, Australian, US and other nations’ doctors and nurses who, despite these barriers and often risking their own lives, remain dedicated and brave.

Tragically there doesn’t seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel.
