University of Buffalo dentist helps fellow Syrians at refugee camps in Turkey
from The Buffalo News
As he walked among Syrian refugees living in tents this summer in Turkey, Othman Shibly couldn't help but picture himself and his family. Having grown up in Syria, Shibly identified with the pain and suffering of tens of thousands of people forced to flee their homes and find safety in a foreign country. Shibly knew he had to do something. So the Amherst resident and University at Buffalo faculty member decided to focus on what he knows best: dental care. He helped spearhead the opening of two full-service dental clinics serving Syrian refugees in Turkey, and he returned to the region for 10 days recently to provide dental care and train other dentists.
