Johannesburg – Forty-seven South African medics are en-route to a makeshift hospital in northern Syria.

They’re armed with much-needed supplies. An estimated 100, 000 people have died in a civil war there, which has now entered its second year. 

Among the Gift of the Givers medical team is a mother of five, who’s left her work at a private hospital, to lend a hand in the war-torn country.
