BOMBING OF HOSPITALS IN WEST ALEPPO

More than 600,000 people have had their access to medical care taken away after three hospitals were demolished by warplanes over the space of 24 hours.

Doctors are having to make impossible choices between which patients to treat and without access to medical care citizens are stranded with no hope of help. Treatable diseases and injuries become a death sentence. It destroys communities and forces people out of their homes.

Since the beginning of the conflict at least 750 medical workers have been killed and over 400 hospitals bombed and these are estimations, The Syria Campaign thinks the number is actually a lot higher.

The targeting of hospitals is not an accident. Cutting citizens off from such vital services creates chaos and fear, forcing citizens back into areas under the Syrian governments control.

When bombs land, the White Helmets rush in to search for life in the rubble – fully aware that more bombs may fall on the same site. These volunteers have saved 62,000 lives – and this number is growing daily. We are honoured to have bought the White Helmets two ambulances in the past and hope we can do more for them in the future.
