Wounded Syrian refugees are cared for at Reynhali State Hospital, just a few miles from the Syrian border in Reynhali, Turkey. As the conflict in Syria intensifies, ambulances continue to carry sick and wounded people from the border every day, although the hospital capacity is only 200 beds. The problem is not only capacity but where the Syrian refugees should go after treatment. Most of them will wait for a solution to the Syrian crisis at refugee camps.
