KEEP HOPE ALIVE AND ACT
SCM Medical Missions is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization focused on the specific task of bringing relief and aid to people affected by conflict and natural disaster within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and to bring people and cultures together to build bridges of understanding.
In the Jordanian refugee camps and in Greece, we have been saving lives and helping to restore dignity to those who have lost everything. This is the greatest humanitarian crisis since World War II and SCM is a constant presence on the ground, treating each person as an individual with a history and hopes for the future.
Our main actions are currently
to send medical and humanitarian supplies,
to send medical missions to the camps and refugee communities,
to distribute food aid to refugees in Jordan
and to provide assistance to refugee families resettled in Washington state.
We operate an ongoing drive to collect clothing, toys, medical supplies, wheelchairs, walkers, blankets, and other supplies that we send by container to Jordan. SCM has, to date, shipped over 350,000 lbs of badly-needed supplies to the region.
We have an active team of administrators and volunteers in Jordan who work with local authorities and other NGOs to ensure that the refugees are receiving the best possible care and assistance we can give them.
