Doctors In Danger Petition 
In September we launched the Doctors in Danger campaign that seeks to bring awareness to the systematic attacks against health and aid workers in Syria. UOSSM Canada has launched a petition, which has already garnered over 16,000 signatures, that asks for the implementation of the international law which prohibits attacks against medical facilities and the opening of a safe impartial humanitarian corridor for NGOs to deliver essential assistance. September also happened to mark one of the worst times for hospitals in Syria, with 19 recorded attacks in total against hospitals & medical aid facilities. 

If you haven't signed the petition yet please do so & share with your friends on social media with #DoctorsInDanger.
