MAKING ESSESNTIAL HEALTHCARE ITEMS IN SYRIA
One specific area we’re addressing is healthcare in Northwest Syria, where the lengthy conflict has decimated the healthcare system. We’ve surveyed more than 50 hospitals and healthcare centers – which serve hundreds of thousands of people in the region – to learn what critical medical devices need repair. In summer 2020, the team began fixing the items they could in their workshops; by Dec 2021, We repaired 200 critical items, including nebulizers, ECG machines and ventilators needed to treat patients suffering from COVID-19 symptoms. Team members also made parts to repair infant warmers, suction devices and a CT machine.In addition to developing number of critical items like the Colling Chiller and the Air Filter/ for the operations rooms.
