Presented by Dr. Majdi Omar, MD, Pediatrician
Syria’s civil war has created the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Since the onset of the War in 2011 about 11 million Syrians have been displaced from their homes. This includes about 4.8 million refugees who have been forced to seek safety in neighboring countries.
Dr. Majdi Omar, a Quad Cities pediatrician, has treated hundreds of Syrian children at refugee camps in Jordan during several mission trips organized by the Syrian American Medical Society Foundation. In his talk he will share his perspective of the Syrian refugee crises based on his experience and observations.
