The Project: The National Syrian Project for Prosthetic Limbs 
Our Vision: The project aims to restore amputees’ normal life and make them active members of the society.

Description 
The Syrian national project for artificial limbs is non-profit and non-political independent humanitarian medical charity established in August 2012. The project is the result of a vigorous effort and cooperation between a group of Syrian doctors, some independent and some belong to a prestigious medical bodies such as the Syrian British Medical Society ( SBMS) in the United Kingdom and Syrian Expatriate Medical Association ( SEMA) in France. 
Our goal is to provide complete service to the patient starting from the early stages of psychological support , physical therapy, fitting of prosthesis and gait training to social rehabilitation and helping patients to return to their previous work and be engaged as an active member in the community.
The project is an institute that operate according to its democratic by-laws. The financial support is mainly derived from charities registered in UK (Syria Relief) and France (SEMA). This enables the project to provide its services free of charge to any Syrian amputee in need without any discrimination. 
The project uses a modified Jaipur Foot technique to manufacture the artificial lower limbs. The technique depends mainly on converting low cost drain pipes into a limb skeleton. Feet and articulated knees are then added as needed. Please see links:

قام مجموعة من الأطباء السوريين بتأسيس المنظمة الوطنية السورية 
لتعويض الأطراف لإقامة مشروع وطني عام و عاجل يقوم بتعويض الأطراف السفلية المبتورة خلال الثورة السورية .
المشروع يهدف لصناعة تعويضات للأطراف السفلية محلياً و بتكلفة رمزية بهدف استيعاب كل المصابين بشكل عاجل 

يشرف على هذا المشروع مجموعة من الأطباء الذين ينتمون لعدة منظمات طبية و إغاثية سورية و هم الجمعية الطبية السورية البريطانية SBMS و الرابطة الطبية للمغتربين السوريين و اتحاد المنظمات الطبية الإغاثية السورية .

Awareness & Prevention Through Art (AptART) is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to give vulnerable children an artistic experience with an opportunity to express themselves as well as an outlet to build awareness and promote prevention about the issues that affect their lives. All children regardless of their circumstances should be given an opportunity to participate in the arts.

AptART holds exhibitions both locally and internationally displaying artwork created by children participating in projects. Proceeds from the exhibitions are returned back to AptART to fund future projects. In this particular case, we’re looking at AptART’s work in Zaatari, the fifth-largest ‘city’ in Jordan, and the not-so-temporary home of 130,000 Syrian refugees.

On an unsuspecting, breeze-block building, sat along a dirt path, you can enjoy a colourful painting of two white houses shaking hands, with a banner of Arabic script saying ‘My house is your house’. It’s a sentiment that defies local Jordanian-Syrian tension but is designed to at least try and make a difference. And all created by local children, alongside award-winning Spanish graffiti artist Ruben Sanchez. This painting was part of a four-month trip to Jordan in January, when Ruben took part in the art project, designed to improve the environment and prospects of thousands of Jordanian and Syrian children, and get them working together. Here is just a glimpse at some of the resulting work.

#WithSyria

The #WithSyria campaign will launch in thirty five countries as we approach the anniversary of the Syria conflict on the 15th of March, amassing an unprecedented popular movement in solidarity with those caught in the conflict. A collective appeal will be launched by global organisations and key individuals calling on political leaders to sign up to a pledge to do everything they can to make this the last anniversary marked by bloodshed.

A series of actions will highlight the call built around the global release of “With Syria” balloons by children from around the world, the lighting up of iconic buildings, messages of solidarity from high profile individuals, and a campaign video taking inspiration from Banksy’s image of hope.

For more information on how you can take part in these vigils, visitwww.with‑syria.org.

With Syria, Bansky

Did the World Health Organisation contribute to Syria’s polio outbreak? 
WHO’s response to Syria’s polio outbreak, and its close relationship with the Syrian government, have been called into question.
A New York Times report has highlighted the failures that contributed to Syria’s polio outbreak, and suggested that “the United Nations itself has aggravated the situation”. The authors, Adam P Coutts, a researcher at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and Fouad M Fouad, a Syrian doctor, suggested that the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) close links with the Syrian government could have contributed to its failure to vaccinate children in the Deir al-Zour area – where cases of polio were detected last year. WHO is housed in the Syrian health ministry building, and some of its staff members are ex-government.
The New York Times reports that WHO argued that Deir al-Zour was not included in their 2012 vaccination campaign because “the majority of its residents have relocated to other areas of the country”, but says there is no evidence that this is true. In fact, the UN World Food Programme continued delivering food aid to Deir al-Zour until 2013.
