Saida Free Clinic Update

We recently received this report from our Labanon manager about a new program at our clinic in Lebanon. The clinic serves disadvantaged people in the Saida commuity, just south of Beirut. All of Lebanon has been hard-hit by economic collapse and the Lebanese people, as well as Syrian refugees in the area, are able to get the care they need but otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford. This is what your donations to our clinic program are providing to the community in Saida.


SCM Medical Missions Weekly Family Event at Our Clinic in Saida, Lebanon:
Fostering Health and Unity in the Community

SCM Medical Missions, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive healthcare services, is proud to introduce our newest program at our clinic in Saida, Lebanon – a weekly event that brings together 50 families and their children. With two fully equipped dental rooms, a trauma center, and a periotic office, the SCM Medical Clinic is well-prepared to serve the diverse healthcare needs of the community. This article explores the significance of the weekly family event and the positive impact it has on promoting health and unity within the community.

Uniting Families, Nurturing Health: SCM’s weekly family event at the Free Clinic has become a highlight for families in the community. Held every Thursday, it offers an opportunity for families to come together in a supportive and engaging environment. By encouraging attendance and active participation, the clinic fosters a sense of unity among families, nurturing a community that supports and uplifts one another.
Comprehensive Dental Care: As part of the weekly family event, SCM’s clinic provides families access to its two fully equipped dental rooms. Recognizing the importance of oral health, the clinic offers comprehensive dental check-ups, treatments, and preventive care for both children and adults. Through these services, families receive the necessary dental care to maintain healthy smiles and prevent potential dental issues.

Immediate Care in Times of Crisis: The presence of a trauma center within SCM’s Medical Clinic ensures that families attending the weekly event have access to immediate medical care in case of emergencies. Accidents and unforeseen situations can happen at any time, and having a trauma center on-site provides families with peace of mind. The clinic’s skilled medical professionals are trained to respond promptly and effectively, ensuring the well-being of all attendees.

Proactive Health Maintenance: The SCM Medical Clinic’s office plays a vital role in the weekly family event by offering ongoing health maintenance services. Families can take advantage of routine check-ups, consultations, and health education sessions, empowering them to proactively manage their overall well-being. By prioritizing preventive care and health education, the clinic encourages families to make informed decisions about their health and adopt healthy lifestyles.

Creating Lasting Memories: Beyond healthcare services, the weekly family event at SCM Medical Clinic is designed to create lasting memories for families. Engaging activities such as interactive games, arts and crafts, and storytelling sessions are organized to foster bonding and strengthen family relationships. These shared experiences contribute to the overall well-being and happiness of families, creating a positive and nurturing environment.

Conclusion: SCM Medical Clinic’s weekly family event serves as a powerful platform for promoting health and unity within the community. With its comprehensive dental services, trauma center, and general medicine office, the clinic caters to the diverse healthcare needs of families. By bringing families together, nurturing health, and creating a sense of community, SCM’s Medical Clinic continues to make a significant impact in the lives of those it serves. The weekly family event is a testament to the clinic’s commitment to providing comprehensive care and fostering a strong, supportive community.

Wheelchairs Bound for Lebanon

We would like to thank Randy Winn and Bill Caldwell for organizing, transporting, and delivering 30+ wheelchairs that will go in our container to Lebanon at the end of July. They got 47 gently used wheelchairs, plus walkers and similar equipment, from the Washington State Veterans Home in Orting (where they were surplus) to our warehouse in Marysville (north of Everett) for shipment to the Lebanon Free Clinic for refugees and the poor in Saida.

If you have excess medical equipment/supplies or things like crutches, wheelchairs, walkers, etc, and would like to donate them, please drop them off at the warehouse at CostPlus Furniture (our Lebanon director, Ali Osseiran, is letting us use part of his facility). The address is 9620 State Ave, Unit A, Marysville, WA 98270.

You can also buy items we need that we have put on an Amazon list. Everything from this list will be shipped to the warehouse so there will be no need to find a way to get it to Marysville. Click this link to see the list: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/38SQY7GQ4R5EK?ref_=abls_nvfly_yl

If you have any questions about what is needed or suitable, you can contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions.

Sidon Dental Clinic in Action

Our free clinic in Sidon/Saida is already helping children by treating cavities and toothaches, and providing dental hygiene. We just received some videos on the clinic in action – thanks to you painful tooth has been removed, and children are getting dental check-ups to help prevent the effects of dental neglect. There is much more going on, but these instances show what can be achieved in a short time with your help!

Be sure to donate to help keep the clinic going and providing dental and medical services to those in need.

New Clinic and Food Distribution in Lebanon

SCM is busy in Lebanon! Our representative, Mr. Ali Osseiran, left Seattle on December 21 with suitcases full of your donated medications and other supplies for the clinic. The medications will be dispensed through the clinic when they begin to see patients at the end of this month.

We already have 2 dental suites and we are in the process of finishing the plumbing and other required set up before we can finish moving everything in and stocking the cabinets. Some furniture for the reception and offices has been moved in, with the rest just waiting in the wings until painting and other renovations are complete.

Ali also coordinated a food distribution that took place at the clinic last week. Food staples such as rice, oil, tea, pasta and more were handed out to refugee families. With the price of food and other necessities making it very difficult for many people to get enough to feed their families, these food distributions are very important.

We really need your help to maintain this new clinic and continue providing these services to the refugees and people of Lebanon. The clinic will serve refugee families as well as low income Lebanese families alike.

And if you are traveling to Lebanon, please consider taking an extra suitcase that we will give you filled with additional supplies. One of our in-country volunteers will meet you at the airport and take the bag to our clinic so you don't have to worry about delivering it.
