SYRIA - In the midst of the ongoing Syrian Civil War, the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) has a fleet of nine Mobile Health Units (MHUs) bringing much needed medical aid to remote and impacted communities. On a typical visit to a town, a MRU might see between 120 to 150 patients seeking free professional consultations and medicine. Each MHU is staffed with a doctor, a nurse and two SARC’s volunteers. The following video presents one of the teams in action as it visits an area near Homs, Syria. For more information see: SARC Mobile Health Units.
