A humanitarian tragedy is unfolding while the world watches and does nothing. Months of siege and the indiscriminate bombing by the Syrian government and its allies have left the population of eastern Aleppo in desperate straits and its health system in tatters.

November 11, 2016

Doctors in eastern Aleppo are working under extraordinarily difficult circumstances, including shortages of health staff, fuel, drugs, and medical supplies.

As they treat the wounded, their own hospitals are being hit by airstrikes. Each of the eight hospitals that were functioning before the siege has been hit, many of them multiple times, with 27 strikes on hospitals in just four months. But in almost every case, the damaged buildings were cleared of debris, patched up, and reopened within a matter of days.

The organizations is saying "Thank you" to all the donors and supporters of the campaign who made this possible.
