Help to save and change lives in Syria

“Whoever removes a grief from a believer from amongst the sorrows of this life, Allah will remove a grief from him amongst the sorrows of the Day of Resurrection.” (Sahih Muslim)

£10 provides life-saving aid to one person

£100 provides life-saving aid to ten people

£300 provides life-saving aid to thirty people

Across Syria, an estimated 11.7 people are still in need of humanitarian support and 6.2 million are displaced within Syria.

Between 2011 and 2019 there were 492 attacks on healthcare facilities, and now Human Appeal's hospital for women and children, which is a lifeline for thousands of Syrian people, is under attack.

Human Appeal's hospital for women and children, is currently under attack and has had to evacuate patients and staff to safety.

We strongly condemn this attack. Human Appeal has funded the hospital, which is a paediatrics, gynaecology, maternity and children’s hospital, for the last five years. We have provided life-saving staff, training and medical equipment, helping thousands of patients.

Last year, we provided 16,500 medical procedures through the hospital and delivered the latest training to eight midwives, nurses and technicians. The hospital’s medical staff carried out 19,523 consultations on children, and 15,042 consultations on pregnant women and mothers. We also run a mobile healthcare facility from the hospital. In total, 43,456 people were helped through our healthcare support in western Aleppo last year.

All human beings have a right to access healthcare. 13.2 million people need health assistance in Syria right now but millions are going without life-sustaining medical care. We desperately need your help now to save the hospital.

Samira's Struggle

Samira and her family of 10 fled Aleppo in 2011 at the start of the Syria conflict. They’ve been living in a cramped refugee camp in Lebanon ever since.

Sadly, Samira’s son, Jawad, has not spoken since the first bombings in Aleppo, which happened near the family home. He was just two years old. Too young to understand what was happening, yet he went into a shock, and never recovered.

Seven years later, Jawad is still afraid when he sees new people. He never plays. Never laughs. He communicates with his family using signs. Samira wishes her son could speak and attend school. Yet the everyday struggle of trying to feed her family and trying to access medical help is challenging enough.

Samira prays for a normal life. She dreams she will one day see her son talking and laughing. But like many Syrian refugees in Lebanon, her hope is fading.

With countless lives lost and no end to the war in sight, the Syria conflict, now in its eight year, is the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time. Half the country – more than 11 people – have been killed or forced to flee their homes. Our faith is needed now more than ever.
