FAI RELIEF IN SYRIA
"Can a body live without a heart?" Eight years into a brutal civil war, Syria is surviving unprecedented suffering and facing an unknown future. The Syrian Division of FAI Relief has established medical centers in multiple locations providing family and pediatric care, trauma care, surgery, and midwifery/maternity care.
BUILDING NEW FOUNDATIONS
LIKE YOU, for years we have watched Syria devour itself, wondering if there is anything we could do to help. As an organization, we have been praying for Syrians since the conflict first erupted. In fact, it is fair to say the outbreak of hostilities in Syria (in conjunction with the regional Arab Spring) was quite possibly the primary logical motivation for the creation of Frontier Alliance International in 2012.
Anyone who has built a home knows that foundation laying is neither nebulous nor vague. It is very tangible, mathematical, measurable, and down to earth in the most literal way—and very important. You cannot put up walls if you don’t have a solid foundation to place them on. The labor of foundation laying has less to do with subjective philosophy and talking and more to do with calculated strategy and actual doing.
BORN UNDER BARREL BOMBS
We operate several family and pediatric clinics serving women, children, the elderly, and more across isolated regions of Syria. One of our locations alone is home to 200 pregnant women (that's not a typo—two hundred expectant mothers!). You can imagine the joy of entire communities when new life enters the world and Syria's newest citizens take their first breaths—even in underground bunkers while barrel bombs drop overhead.
TRAUMA & CRITICAL CARE
Our clinics treat critical traumas, injuries, and support people of all ages caught in the crosshairs of a bloody civil war. Sometimes these surgeries take place in an underground bunker that we've converted into a medical center with an operating room.
FOOD & AID
Ongoing war means sieges, blockades, and little to no access to food and water or medical care. This means communities are rife with people suffering ongoing malnutrition or deteriorating injuries and debilitating sickness. Our clinics and medical centers are also distribution points for family medicine, fresh food, and clean water.
