MSF Trains Syrians To Give First Aid at Front Line, Denounces Imbalanced Distribution of Aid

The majority of international humanitarian aid is being implemented from the capital city of Damascus and distributed to areas under government control. Aid remains minimal for some seven million Syrians living in opposition-held regions, where conditions continue to worsen. During a donor conference held in late January, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) spoke out about the imbalanced distribution of international aid provided to Syria. MSF teams are providing care for patients in neglected areas and training Syrians to give first aid near the front line.
