Hand in Hand for Syria team up with AAR Japan

Tuesday, August 1, 2017
Over the past year and a half, our teams in Syria have been working closely with AAR Japan to shed light on the living conditions of those left with disabilities and physical impairments as a direct result of the conflict in Syria. Our team on the ground in Syria have been interviewing survivors, compiling data, conducting interviews with healthcare workers in order to identify and respond to the specific medical and rehabilitation needs of the injured in Syria.

Almost a quarter of those facing life changing injuries in Syria are children under the age of 18. This report is the first of it's kind, and is essential in enabling us, and other NGO's working in Syria, to adequately respond to the growing need for healthcare tailored to disabilities and physical impairments.
