Syria 02.06.2022

At IHH’s Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Center in Sarmada, a rural area in Idlib, Syria, specialist support is given to civilians for traumas due to accidents, victims of attacks and patients suffering from neurological diseases caused by defects in the nervous system.


Almost 90 people benefit monthly from the center that has separate departments for women, men and children.

Manager of the Center Dr. Ataa Hatip said that the center opened in 2020 and has been serving people of various age groups.

Explaining that they welcome every patient that complies with the services provided by the center, Dr. Hatip said “Patients generally come to our center due to neurotic conditions. Our expert team performs a regular treatment program with various equipment. In addition, we also provide patients’ needs including wheelchairs, walking-sticks and disposable adult peds.”


30 year-old Muaz Abdulhadi, who was injured in his right shoulder by a shrapnel during an attack in the region where he lived, said “I came to this center 2 months ago. My bone was shattered when a shrapnel injured my shoulder. Because of this, the right side of my body was paralyzed. Currently, I am receiving treatment. Fortunately, this process is going well.”

Explaining that he is doing his internship at the Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Center, Muhammad al Safani, a 3rd grade student of the Medical Department of Hayat University in Idlib said “Here we have the opportunity to practice the theoretic training we receive at school. Among the patients we see here more frequently are those with spine injuries and semi-paralyzed patients.”


6 specialists and 52 interns work at the center which is open 6 days a week.
