Half of thes are children
The biggest humanitarian of our time
Six years since the start of conflict in Syria, over half the country’s population is in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Hospitals, schools and bakeries have been destroyed by heavy bombing and violence, hundreds of thousands have been killed and millions more have had to flee to their homes.
Action Relief will be working with Muslim Aid in supporting a large hospital in Northern Syria – close to the Turkish Border. It sees over 14,000 patients every single month – people affected by one of the worst humanitarian crisis and conflicts of our times.
Bursting at the seams, this hospital is a literal lifeline for the sick and wounded who pass through its doors in their droves – people injured by barrel bombs and shelling, maimed by gun fire and explosions, mothers and children sick from malnutrition and disease. 1 in 5 Syrians who live in the north of Syria will pass through this hospital – many of them bleeding and in pain.
Heavy strain on resources and beds means that the hospital is struggling. Threats of violence and destruction on hospitals, attacks on medical staff, damaged buildings and restrictions on the passage of medicine and medical supplies mean that the hospital is in desperate need of aid.How you can help
