The PRCS established a committee to examine general conditions in Syria and to assist the Syrian Red Crescent Society with doctors, nurses and psychosocial workers backed by teams of volunteers to provide humanitarian assistance to victims of these distressing events. PRCS shall continue to coordinate with its Syrian sister society to heal the wounds of victims of these painful events.
While saddened by these distressing events in Syria, PRCS stands ready to make its capabilities inside and outside Syria available to the Syrian Red Crescent Society in line with its humanitarian duty to support the efforts made by its sister in Syria to face the health, social and environmental consequences of these events.
