The Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) trauma surgery project near Jordan’s border with Syria opened in September 2013 and immediately began saving lives. Since then, the project team has conducted more than 2,000 major surgeries—many of which were lifesaving—for more than 600 patients. 

“One of our very first critical patients was admitted in September 2013 after he had been caught in an airstrike in southern Syria. He told our medical team ‘let me die, you can’t fix me,’” says MSF Head of Mission Paul Foreman.
