Impact Story- Cancer Patients Unable to Receive Medications Due to Closure of Turkish Borders from COVID-19
Due to the global COVID-19 crisis, many of the Syrian borders with Turkey were closed. This left Syrian patients, who used to seek advanced treatment of cancer in Turkey, in critical need for medicines to treat their cancer. Many of these patients are children. Out of a moral, humanitarian obligation, UOSSM Turkey began this campaign: #SaveALife to provide the medications needed to treat cancer patients. The first ten children began receiving chemotherapy in one of the hospitals in northern Syria. There is a large number of patients still requiring cancer treatment. You can help provide medications that are desperately needed by donating today.
Because of caring individuals like you, UOSSM USA was able to sponsor some children to receive their cancer treatment.
