In early March 2019, we ran a surgical mission to Lebanon with Syria Relief to support Syrian and Palestinian refugees living in refugee camps. The work done by the teams involved everything from repair of blast injuries from conflict to skin grafts for burns, as well as more routine operations.
With your support we were also able to run primary care clinics for day-to-day healthcare issues. David also taught surgical procedures to local surgeons in Lebanon giving them the specialist skills needed to work with victims of conflict.
We’ve been hearing from one of the doctors on the mission, who told us: “This work not only invests in the local surgical team, but also provides life changing operations free of charge for Syrian and Palestinian refugees who would not be able to access this treatment otherwise.”
