SAVE SYRIA'S HOSPITALS
Systematic targeting of #hospitals
has resulted in more than half of all public medical facilities being forced to close or rendered useless in Syria. #UOSSM
found that in 2016, hospitals in Syria sustained a total of 1004 direct & indirect attacks. On average, each hospital was struck 7 times in an indirect #attack
, and was specifically targeted twice during the course of the year.
Lack of staff & resources has also caused closures; in 2016 UOSSM found there to be a ratio of just 2 doctors per 10,000 civilians. Many hospital buildings have been damaged & others re-purposed as temporary shelters for internally displaced families.
sector in #Syria
is in a deep #crisis
. With so few #doctors
left, and a limited number of #hospitals
open – 1000's of people are left without medical care, in a country with a rising number of #casualties
We currently have 4 functioning hospitals in Syria, specialising in #Women
, Trauma & General surgery, as well as a mobile medical unit & #clinic
. We support 20 makeshift hospitals & clinics with medical consumables on a regular basis.
All our hospitals provide free medical treatment to civilians.
Syria may filter in and out of headlines occasionally, but the crisis only worsens. We urgently need funds to keep these hospitals running.
Your contributions towards our #medical
relief projects will enable us to save countless lives, and continue to provide free #health
care & treatment to the injured and sick inside Syria. ○ £10,000 could help set up an #Emergency
Room in a hospital ○ £5000 could buy a good-quality generator to power a hospital ○ £3000 could buy an ambulance and help us safely transport the injured ○ £2000 could buy an incubator and keep a premature baby alive ○ £2000 could cover running costs in one of our hospitals for a day ○ £500 could pay for the daily fuel needed to power the generators in our hospitals
