MAP International Rushes Medicine and Supplies to Syrian Refugees Caught in Escalating Humanitarian Crisis

BRUNSWICK, Ga., Jan. 12, 2017—MAP International is responding to the Syrian refugee crisis by delivering urgently needed medicines and emergency supplies to people who have fled to neighboring Jordan for safety. The U.N. Refugee Agency estimates 6.3 million people are internally displaced, and are desperately in need of medical assistance and care after escaping their war-torn home country.

MAP International—along with more than 80 doctors, nurses and health representatives from its partner organization, the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS)—delivered medical packs to refugees in Amman, Jordan, this week. The packs contain antibiotics, oral rehydration salts, pain relievers, cough and cold medicine, basic first-aid supplies, vitamins, personal hygiene supplies and surgical gloves.
