Syrian doctor in Canada sneaks home to help

Dual citizen working as surgeon in Canada travels to Syria to provide much needed medical care.

    One of the challenges in Syria is getting medical help to the tens of thousands of people who have been injured in the fighting.

    The situation has prompted a Syrian-Canadian surgeon to sneak into Syria from Turkey every few months to provide desperately needed medical care.

    Dr Anas al-Kassem has also set up clandestine clinics there.

    Al Jazeera’s Daniel Lak met him at his home in Oakville, Canada.
