Dr. Monzer Yazji, co-founder of UOSSM/UOSSM USA, is on his second trip to Ukraine to provide medical support by establishing a UOSSM Ukraine office, and medical points to support Ukrainians affected by the war. Dr. Yazji said, ” We are seeing around 60 patients a day, in one medical point at a church. Tomorrow, the number is expected to jump to 300 patients per day, as other local churches will be sending patients here to this medical point.
We also formed a network of volunteer doctors of different specialties; we did training for them today.”
On his first trip, Dr. Yazji met with other international NGOs and local officials to assess the situation, establish UOSSM Ukraine, and provide medical relief. You can read about the first medical mission here and about the parallels between the Syrian and Ukrainian crisis here.
UOSSM was founded in 2012, in response to the crisis in Syria to help provide emergency humanitarian relief, medical care and relief and train those on the ground to handle war wounds, chemical attacks and other war related injuries and is now in Ukraine to provide the same type of support and services to Ukrainians affected by the war.
