In April 2017, Unity Convoy took the largest ever ambulance convoy to Syria. Initial findings of data from ground indicate approximately 8,500 patients were served in a period of 6 months through 50 of the ambulances sent in 2017. In 2018, Unity Convoy set out again with the aim of providing emergency response vehicles and medical aid inside Syria. It was another success with thousands of people being served with essential and sometimes critical medical aid.
The scale of the humanitarian crisis has forced charities to come together again and address the dire need for ambulances and medical aid across the country.

The elected lead charity for the Unity Convoy is Hand in Hand for Aid & Development, who will be facilitating the handover of ambulances into Syria.
The convoy of ambulances will be departing from the UK in July 2019, travelling by road through Europe and heading for the Bulgarian border with Turkey. To complete the final leg of the convoy, the ambulances will be handed over to the Syrian partners of the consortium, who will deliver and distribute the ambulances inside Syria.
Unity Convoy will also be supporting hospitals across Syria that provide essential medical care for the patients we hope to serve.
