About the Save Syrian Lives Campaign:
In February 2012, SAMS launched the ‘Save Syrian Lives’ campaign, a signature program that encompasses medical relief activities directed to help Syrian patients, healthcare workers, administrators and hospitals to deal with the multifaceted ramifications of the Syrian crisis and provide life-saving measures to all affected areas in Syria.
The Save Syrian Lives Campaign supports the treatment of patients injured or maimed directly by the violence, bombing, shelling, sniper attacks and chemical weapon attacks. SAMS has built an infrastructure of healthcare facilities, field hospitals, warehouses, offices in five different countries and hired and trained more than 50 employees in a short span of less than two years.
The campaign is credited to save or impact the lives of millions of Syrians and support thousands of healthcare workers. You can join this cause and help save more lives by securely donating by clicking on the button below.
The Syrian American Medical Society Foundation is a U.S. recognized and respected 501(c)(3) organization.
