We are a medical relief organization

We provide critical medical care and humanitarian aid where its needed

Our Mission

Atlantic Humanitarian Relief was formed to address the need by bringing added medical personnel, training, and resources to the refugee populations, predominantly in and around Jordan. It began with one man, carrying medications to those in need; mission after mission the AHR vision grew and continues to grow as we have more volunteers and more specialties being represented to service the refugees in Jordan. Our mission is to provide medical relief and support services that address the physical wounds and emotional suffering of those impacted by the ongoing military conflict in Syria. We focus our time and services to those seeking not only medical attention, but also psychological care as well.

Throughout the several trips, volunteers have brought educational kits for children, books, face paint, games, toys, and various articles of clothing for all ages.

Aside from our biannual mission trips, we have various projects throughout the year. We have helped establish sustainable care units that address the medical and humanitarian needs of the Syrian refugees.
