Every day, thousands of Syrian children and their families flee for safety
It has been seven years and counting. The Syrian Civil War has left over 7.4 million people without a home; and
more than 5 million have sought refuge in surrounding countries like Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan. Some of
these countries have stretched beyond their limits with resources, thus leaving women, children and the elderly
especially vulnerable. Many Syrians are living on less than the bare minimum. Resources for medical care, food,
clean water, and shelter are scarce. In Jordan, an approximated more than 800,000 Syrians are trapped in exile.
Many struggle to rebuild their lives in these countries, as they hold on to the hope of returning home to their
beloved Syria. With tensions rising, the Syrians need our help now more than ever, and we need yours.
Atlantic Humanitarian Relief, Inc. (AHR) is a Boston-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (also non-religious, non-political) with volunteers from across the globe. In November 2012 board members of AHR – not being able to stand idly by without action – embarked on their first volunteer medical/humanitarian mission to Jordan to serve Syrian refugees. Since then, AHR organizes week long medical and humanitarian trips to aid Syrian refugees in Jordan. They work in makeshift clinics, community centers and refugee camps throughout the country treating thousands of patients per trip. Collaborating with other organizations dedicated to Syrian relief, they collect and distribute humanitarian aid and coordinate medical missions to areas of Jordan with little or no access to medical care. There are over 600k Syrian refugees in Jordan. In a week span, AHR provides primary and urgent care to thousands with limited to no access to healthcare.
Providing medical and humanitarian aid can only continue with your generous support.
