Lebanon Measles Outbreak Response
The Ministry of Public Health in Lebanon has declared a measles outbreak among children, including Syrian Refugees.
The surge in refugees since the war in Syria began has created a significant strain on Lebanon’s health system. Children are not being vaccinated against this disease, which can be deadly–especially for children under five.
We are going neighborhood-to-neighborhood in our mobile medical unit, and when we see families are not coming to us, we’re going door-to-door checking with families to see that their children are vaccinated against measles as well as polio. We’re administering vaccine for measles, MMR and polio according to each child’s immunization record.
Before this outbreak turns into an epidemic, we need your help to vaccinate thousands of children with an urgent mobile medical vaccination program.
PLEASE DONATE TODAY AND SAVE CHILDREN FROM A DEADLY MEASLES OUTBREAK!
