WWE Monday Night RAW Superstar Sami Zayn will be launching a charity in aid of a mobile clinic in Syria to help those affected by conflict.
Zayn, 34, will be partnering with The Syrian American Medical Society to launch the appeal this Friday, during the company's Super Showdown event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

I will once again be partnering with @sams_usa to launch a mobile clinic in Syria to bring medical aid to those in desperate need.
Our fundraiser will be launched Friday, June 7, 2pm EDT.

The former NXT Champion has been banned from appearing at the event due to his Syrian heritage, just one of several controversies surrounding WWE's decade-long deal with the nation.
All female Superstars have also been banned from appearing, and several male stars have refused to appear, including John Cena, Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens.
This will be the third pay per view as part of the partnership, with last year's Greatest Royal Rumble and Crown Jewel events both being marred in controversy.
WWE Super Showdown will take place Friday, June 7, at the King Abdullah Sports Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and will feature a 50-man Battle Royal, Randy Orton Vs. Triple H, the first match ever between The Undertaker and Goldberg, and other matches.
