This Ramadan, help fight hunger and improve the health of those families affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Innocent lives are depending on us.

Your gift is zakat eligible - please select the zakat eligible button as you make your giftThe Prophet (PBUH) said; “Whoever feeds a fasting person to break their fast will equally reap, without diminishing, the rewards of the fasting person”.

Over 4 million displaced people in Northern Syria are living in dire conditions, struggling to survive, with no food, clean water, medical care, or home to stay safe in. Now, a new threat is imminent in Northern Syria with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing is not an option in overcrowded camps, and many do not even have a home to stay safe in.

UOSSM has been providing emergency relief and medical aid to millions of affected people and families in northern Syria and Turkey since 2012. 

OUR PROGRAMS:

  • ​Primary Health Care - Maternity Care - Mobile Clinics (Syria)
  • Emergency Medical Relief - Hospitals - UOSSM Bab Al-Hawa Hospital (Syria)
  • Mental Health and Psychosocial Services - Physiotherapy (Syria and Turkey)
  • Protection Services (Syria and Turkey)
  • Nutrition Services - Humanitarian Aid (Syria)

With the new imminent threat of COVID-19 outbreak in that region, UOSSM has taken proactive measures to help decrease the extent of the Coronavirus outbreak among the populations in the region. UOSSM began distributing hygiene kits along with educational materials about COVID-19 to families in displacement camps and crowded areas, while continuing to provide emergency relief, food baskets, and medical care to those in need. UOSSM USA is raising funds to continue our response during the COVID-19 crisis to the affected displaced Syrians in the northern region, expand our outreach to the most vulnerable, and protect doctors, medical staff and first responders with the necessary protective gear to safely care for sick patients, so they don’t become victims of this virus.

UOSSM created preventative measures to COVID-19, by providing emergency aid to displacement camps in response to this pandemic crisis. Our response is the following: 

  • Sterilization of 3 camps
  • Distribution of over 1000 hygiene kits containing personal care for women and children
  • The establishment of an isolation center and a distance learning center in Afrin
  • Distribution of educational awareness brochures about COVID-19 for families in areas of displacement

    UOSSM staff preparing hygiene kits for distribution.

    Imagine fasting in Ramadan and not even having a piece of bread to feed your children or break your fast. This is the situation in Northern Syria right now...Won't you help support these families? 

     The food baskets are part of our emergency humanitarian response to improve health and boost immunity. 

    Hanan, in the picture above, was severely malnourished, but after she received the medical care and nutrition services at our UOSSM clinic, she is now a happy, healthy child. Won't you help children like Hanan this Ramadan? YOU can help! Let's make a difference - together!

    Please donate generously and share this campaign with your family and friends through email, text, social media to maximize your impact. EVERY dollar matters! Your gift is zakat eligible and tax-deductible.

    Your life-saving gift will be rushed to help those in need.
