Call for action: fellow medic missing in Syria

3 Dec

Dear fellow bloggers,

It has come to my attention that a fellow student at St George’s is in the midst of a family crisis.

Please take a minute to read the below and pass it on to whomever you feel may be able to help.

Dear friends, Please LIKE AND SHARE this facebook page. My very good friend Sara Khan, a fellow student at SGUL is going through an urgent crisis. Her brother Dr Abbas Khan is training to be an orthopaedic surgeon in London and recently took a sabbatical to engage in relief medicine. He travelled to the Turko-Syrian border with thousands of pounds worth of medical aid to treat injured civilians. Whilst undertaking this humanitarian work in Aleppo, he has disappeared and the family have unconfirmed reports that he has been detained unlawfully by the Syrian government for no other reason than treating the injured. They have not heard from him for 12 days. As you can imagine this is an extremely distressing time for the family and we are urging everyone to help raise awareness of his capture so that British officials may urgently pursue his release. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS FACEBOOK PAGE. Any help is greatly appreciated in ensuring his safe return home. Thank you.
