Humanitarian Aid Projects

Please visit our SCM Medical Missions website for more details on all of our aid projects to help the refugees and others in need in the region.

SCM has used its resources, connections, and status to undertake humanitarian missions across the region, conducted by our Humanitarian Aid Division. Past projects include collecting and sending medical supplies to Iraq after the first Gulf War, collecting funds to help support an orphanage and hospital in Cairo during the Arab Spring, and most recently providing humanitarian aid for the benefit of Syrian refugees in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, and now Greece.

In late 2012 we coordinated the first of many medical missions to Jordan. By teaming with other medical organizations we were able to put together a great group of doctors who traveled to Amman, then spent a week traveling to camps and various villages throughout northern Jordan. They provided medical treatment for wounds and illness, and heard the stories of the Syrian people. Since that first mission we have coordinated and led several more, and continue to plan more for the future and in new locations.

In addition to coordinating medical missions, we collect medical supplies and equipment, medications, clothing, and cash donations to help support the humanitarian efforts. The items collected in the US are loaded into containers and shipped to Jordan and Turkey. We are working with an amazing shipping company – Emerat Shipping of Anaheim, CA – and they are helping tremendously with the shipping.

  1. I am interested in knitting baby hats for the Syrian baby boxes. I couldn’t find information for this on your website. Who should I contact?

  2. Is there any way to volunteer with this organization overseas to aid refugees? I have no prior experience, but would like to give hands on help if possible.

  3. A beautiful slideshow. Heartbreaking, yet hopeful. Really takes us into the heart of the Syrian refugees.
