WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SYRIA AND TO SYRIAN REFUGEES IN TURKEY?RCNY Syrian Refugee Children Project

SYRIAN REFUGEES IN TURKEYSyria is located in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, South of Turkey.

About 36 percent of the Syrian refugees to Turkey are mostly located in the 20 camps in 10 cities. These 10 cities are located in the south and southeastern Turkey close to the Syrian-Turkish border.

RCNY Syrian Refugee Children Project

Many refugees have little or no opportunity to take any belongings , they flee with with just their clothes on their back or what they can carry

Syrian refugees are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, especially the children. Many are wounded, exhausted, terrified and have health and nutrition problems

RCNY Syrian Refugee Children Project

Over half of the Syrian refugees in the camps and almost 81 percent of the refugees out of the camps stated that they left Syria for security reasons.

Over 90 percent of the Syrian refugees in the camps and close to three fifths of the refugees out of the camps stated that they used health services in Turkey

RCNY Syrian Refugee Children Project

75% of the refugees are women & children

RCNY Syrian Refugee Children Project

More than half of the refugees are children

Rotary stands as one of the oldest humanistic organizations which is driven by service above self motto. We put the refugee situation into four way test:

-Is it fair to all concerned?-Is it the truth?-Will it build good will and better friendships?-Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

And we have decided to turn on our heart and do a Syrian refugee children project based on health concerns and needs of the refugees.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a device that's placed in the chest or abdomen. Doctors use the device to help treat irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias.

An ICD uses electrical pulses or shocks to help control life-threatening arrhythmias, especially those that can cause sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)

* Rotarys emblem and a brief description of the project was embedded on the donated device

RCNY Syrian Refugee Children ProjectTWO ELECTROCARDIOGRAMS An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical activity of the heart. The heart produces tiny electrical impulses which spread through the heart muscle to make the heart contract. These impulses can be detected by the ECG machine.
