Cholera is rapidly spreading in Syria due to the destruction of healthcare infrastructure and lack of clean water as a result of the ongoing civil war.
Widespread damage to supply and sewerage infrastructure, has left many of the 5 million Syrians who depend on the river for drinking water and crop irrigation reliant on unsafe sources. According to the United Nations, more than 950 cases have already been documented.
The UN has expressed concern about the first confirmed cholera outbreak in Syria in years, saying it poses a "serious threat" to the entire region. A deadly but treatable disease, MedGlobal has launched an emergency appeal to provide cholera treatment kits to those affected.

Provide Life Saving Medical Kits to help treat Cholera Patients
In coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO), MedGlobal was the first organization to respond to the cholera outbreak in Syria.
Our response began by providing training to community health workers across our MedGlobal primary health care (PHC) centers. In Hamam Al Turkmen PHC, Tal Abyad area, Kansafra PHC, Idlib area, Tal Hagar PHC, Jarablus area and Al Bab PHC, Al Bab area on the danger of Cholera and prevention measures
After the training, community health workers across all the areas started visiting camps and began advocating to the community about the danger of a cholera epidemic. Educating them on how to take care of their personal hygiene, ensuring that they drink sterilized water, preventing infection, identifying symptoms and teaching them how to act in case of suspected cases and which medical centers to seek assistance from.
The team has also worked on monitoring suspected cases and referring them to the nearest medical center to receive life-saving health care. In the Tal Abyad Al Tash Bash displaced camp, community health workers team were the first team to reach the area and begin their response.
In the coming days, MedGlobal is expecting to receive support from INGOs that include supplies for distribution, such as medications, WASH kits, etc. With your support we can provide even more life-saving support to those affected by the cholera outbreak in SyriaDonate Now
