With the ceasefire deal collapsing and the UN's inability to get aid into Syria, the Amaliah organization is doing all it can to aid Syrians in need; 'It is difficult to erase decades' worth of hate, but we have to at least show who we really are.

The number of wounded who have sought medical treatment in Israel since the Jewish state began accepting wounded Syrians stands at approximately 2,500 people.
