Bakkar, Suray

Dr. Suray Bakkar and his desire to help the injured

The physician Dr. Suray Bakkar was persecuted in his homeland of Syria and had to flee. But he still found a way to help his fellow compatriots. Together with other doctors, he founded the Akilah Hospital in Amman in Jordan. It takes care of Syrian refugees free of charge – needless to say an enormous help for them. Now, however, due to a new immigration law, Dr. Bakkar is no longer allowed to enter Jordan. He is the director of a hospital he is not allowed to even visit. This is the story of a humanitarian who repeatedly finds himself having to overcome obstacles.
