With the help of supporters like you, MSF is able to treat war-wounded Syrians in our hospitals across neighbouring Jordan. Please help us continue this vital work by making a donation today.


Find out more about Dr Caroline Bwango

Caroline Bwango, a British A&E doctor, returned to the UK from Jordan earlier this year. She was working for MSF in Zaatari, one of the world's largest refugee camps and close to the Syrian border. During her trip she recorded this short vlog about her time there.

MSF in Jordan

Civil war in neighbouring Syria has seen Jordan receive around 600,000 Syrian refugees. The resurgence of Islamic militancy in Iraq also presents security issues for the country.

MSF continues to treat war-wounded Syrians at Ar Ramtha government hospital, Irbid governorate, at the Syrian border. Working with the Ministry of Health, MSF provides emergency surgery and general inpatient care, as well as physiotherapy sessions and psychosocial support.

In 2015, the team in the emergency room attended to 863 wounded patients, 315 of whom were admitted for surgery. They also undertook over 1,600 individual counselling sessions.

Why your support matters

“If MSF were not here, people would simply not survive. If you have nothing in your pocket you can still help by telling people about MSF. Any small way you can help will make a difference and you will know that someone, somewhere, is getting the help they need.”
Dr Omar Alterwaneh - Amman, Jordan
