UOSSM’s Mobile Mental Health Units Visit Earthquake Affected Areas in Atareb

UOSSM’s mobile psychiatric/mental health clinic visited the Atareb makeshift camp in Syria on February 8. Life in camps for internally displaced persons is harsh as it is, but the two earthquakes have exacerbated the humanitarian crisis.
Northwestern Syria has already faced a decade of bombings and shellings, one of the biggest humanitarian crises ever. Dr. Ghanem Tayara, president of UOSSM International, said, “if [the earthquake] doesn’t appeal for immediate humanitarian solidarity and make us join forces to continue offering relief to the most vulnerable population, then what should?”
