UOSSM has been on the ground in Syria providing vital medical care to those affected by the crisis, since 2012. UOSSM has medical and mental health facilities and mobile clinics throughout northern Syria, with thousands of medical workers. But the fear of a brutal campaign against the people of Idlib puts at least 3 million people at risk, including those medical workers.
Around 800 medical workers have been killed and many more have been wounded since the beginning of the crisis. Medical workers have been subject to targeted attacks, detainment, and attacks on their places of work since the beginning of the crisis. This has caused a large number of Syrian medical workers to flee Syria in search of protection for them and their families.
In mid September, medical workers from the Idlib Health Directorate staged a work strike demanding the protection of the international community, to keep them and their places of work safe in the event of a military bombardment of the area.
Please sign our petition and join UOSSM in support of the doctors and medical workers of Idlib. Sign our petition and demand protection for them. Show your solidarity and let them know they're not alone. Your support means a lot to these workers who risk their lives daily to help others.
Medical Workers are #NotATarget
