VIDEO: “Healing the wounds of war – Malteser International helps Syrian refugees in Syria”


We are in Kilis, in Turkey’s southeast – close to the Syrian border. By now the city hosts more refugees than local residents. In Kilis, The Order of Malta’s International Relief agency, Malteser International, in cooperation with its Turkish partner organization, has built up a hospital where the teams treat refugees of the Syrian civil war. Those who made it this far may have survived the war – but frequently suffered severe injuries. Their homes, their homeland, and often part of their families, are gone forever. Here at the field hospital, the refugees receive medical care – by their fellow countrymen. A glimmer of hope for a better future.

Take a look inside the field hospital in Kilis, Turkey:
