‘Healing the wounds of war’: a new video on Malteser International’s work with Syrian refugees


We are in Kilis in southeast Turkey, a city close to the Syrian border that hosts more refugees than local residents. Here, the Order of Malta’s worldwide relief agency Malteser International, in cooperation with its Turkish partner organisation, has constructed a hospital where medics treat refugees of the Syrian civil war. Those who have made it this far may have survived the war but have often suffered severe injuries. Their homes, their homeland, and often members of their families, are gone forever. Here at the field hospital the refugees receive medical care from their fellow countrymen. A glimmer of hope for a better future.
