A Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) mobile clinic team is responding to the growing needs in Idlib province, as more than 150,000 people have fled intense bombing and shelling in northwestern Syria since April 29. The team is assisting newly displaced families in makeshift camps. Living conditions are deteriorating due to increased overcrowding and the lack of basic services.
The mobile clinic team recently carried out more than 300 medical consultations, and MSF personnel are distributing emergency items such as mattresses and blankets to families who lost everything when they fled. MSF is preparing to increase its activities in the coming days.
