Medical Needs and RequirementsDoctors will be on site to assist members of the Jamat in need of emergency medical care and first aid. Individuals who have medical conditions should ensure that they carry their medication. If there are family members who are terminally ill or in hospice and would like to participate in the Darbar please inform the Local Council office as soon as possible to discuss the necessary process.Jamati members with medical conditions that will require special attention should contact their Local Council office to discuss appropriate arrangements.Individuals with chronic illnesses or who are on prescribed medication are advised to maintain an adequate supply of medication. Such individuals are encouraged to carry copies of all prescriptions along with doctor’s name and contact information and where appropriate, Medic-Alert bracelets, EpiPen, etc.
Medical Facilities and First AidHealth care services will be available at two Health Centres located at the venue. Medical professionals can be accessed in three distinct areas:
For minor medical issues or to report a medical event, ask the volunteer closest to you to call the floating medical team. This team is readily available to triage and treat minor medical problems.
Two Clinics will serve minor medical conditions requiring on-the-spot treatment such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, stomachaches, backache, etc. Doctors will serve a higher level of medical problems such as breathing difficulties, chest pains, loss of consciousness, seizure disorders, etc. Patients seen in the Care Center who require hospitalization will be transported via ambulance.
Finally, there is a designated area for Syrian Jamati members who require constant medical attention. Special arrangements were made with the Local Council prior to the Darbar.
Medical care and assistance are provided by volunteers on a voluntary basis. In the event of hospitalization or administration of medical treatment by any health care provider, individuals are personally responsible for all financial obligations incurred. The Council for Syria is not liable for any health care assistance or any related financial costs. Members of the Jamat are, therefore, strongly advised to obtain health and travel insurance.
Expectant MothersChair seating arrangements have been made for expectant mothers who so desire. Please indicate this when you register so that chair arrangements can be made if required. If any further accommodations are needed, please contact your Local Council office or the International registration team.

Baby Diapers
Milk Bottles
Baby Food
NO arrangements have been made to store strollers during the Darbar.Babysitting services will not be offered.
Weather Conditions:The month of August is the height of summer in Syria, with daytime temperatures that are consistently extreme. These pose a severe challenge for the elderly, infirm and sick, and we specifically recommend that Jamati members in these categories should avoid travelling to Syria.
