Muslim Canadian Dentists Provide Free Care for Syrian Refugees

The Canadian Newspaper Global News (7th December 2015) picked up the story of two Canadian Muslim sisters who have travelled to Jordan to provide free dental care for Syrian refugees. The sisters, Asile and Asraa El-Darahali, raised funds for equipment and spent five days treating up to twenty patients a day:

"The two volunteered at the Zaatari refugee camp, one of the largest communities in the country, as part of a trip by the Syrian American Medical Society.

The women, who live in Dartmouth, skipped lunch breaks to treat up to 20 patients per day, which is double the normal amount of people they treat. They paid $3,000 each for travel and accommodations.
