The Education Committee of the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) has put out a request for the donation of education materials and medical textbooks to donate to students in Syria.

SAMS is a non-profit, non-political, professional and medical relief organisation that represents Syrian American medical professionals in the United States. SAMS is working on the front lines of crisis relief in Syria and neighboring countries to alleviate suffering and save lives. Through its rich network within the United States and in Syria, SAMS organises medical missions to Syria, provides professional and educational trainings to Syrian physicians, and delivers medicine and medical supplies to local hospitals and vulnerable families in Syria.

SAM’s Education Committee and network of doctors in the United States connect and collaborate in order to create new programmings to help give Syrian medical professional opportunities to expand their knowledge and experience.
