Syria: Support for dialysis saves lives

18 August 2015

Every month, the dialysis centre in Homs receives nearly 100 patients with kidney problems. Amidst ongoing conflict in Syria, the daily health problems of thousands of Syrians have dropped off the radar. But with ICRC support, the Syrian Arab Red Crescent is keeping these services running.

 Since the beginning of the year, the ICRC has supported some 3,000 dialysis sessions across the country, on both sides of the front line.

Are you living in Syria? Do you need dialysis? Please contact the Syrian Arab Red Crescent's clinics for more information.
