Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by and learn more about the displaced people of Syria and how the Syrian American Medical Society is saving lives.

Though I have more to write you'll find posts of some of my visits with Syrian refugees in Amman and at Zaatari refugee camp on the north on the Syrian border. These people are like you and me. They have very few material things but are happy for their lives and those that have survived with them. For most - despite having experienced the unthinkable - their spirits are undeterred and their love unbridled.

Join me in making a small difference in someone's life. Together we can do so much!

How can you help?  Do you have medical supplies and equipment to donate? Do you wish to make a monetary contribution? Donate Legos for children? 
Contact me at any time:; 413.323.0333

I look forward to hearing from you and learning how you can help.  Many drops in the bucket make it full!

Life in Syrian refugee camps - As reported by Aljazeera

On Tuesday, December 4 at 19:30 GMT / 2:30 EST: 

The conflict in Syria, now in its 20th month, has forced an estimated 465,000 Syrians to flee their homeland, according to the United Nations. 

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expects the number of refugees to reach 700,000 by January, and aid organizations warn that the humanitarian crisis will deepen as temperatures plunge during the winter months. 

What is life like in the refugee camps? We'll pose your questions to Syrians displaced by the conflict who are currently living in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan.
