Israelis, Christians Work Together to Bring Medical Attention, Love to Syrians watch CBNNEWS.COM by Julie Stahl

LATEST UPDATE: Things continue to grow and expand at the medical camp at the border of Israel and Syria. As the situation in Syria intensifies, our services are needed more than ever. We saw our 4,000 th patient in March! And we were able to birth a telemedicine operation. That means some of our patients are receiving quality care by working with a nurse on our end and an Israeli doctor via video conference with the patient and nurse, receiving reports and tests over the internet. It worked beautifully and will allow us to include specialists, have consultations and increase our ability to give quality care to more patients... Read the latest Activities Report, click here.
