After our mobile hospital crossed the border to Rojava, things have gone quiet around our commitment in Northern Syria. Rest assured, we have not been idle in the region — but safety considerations left us in doubt of how to report.

A few weeks ago, we announced our intention to work on Lesvos as part of our Emergency Response Balkans. After our team had observed the situation on the ground for a few days, it became clear that as an organization we could not imagine working in the local conditions. The reasons for this decision can be found in our statement below.
