Al - Imaan Hospital crisis update
Following heavy shelling and bombing, Al - Imaan Hospital in rural Aleppo has been forced to close. Human Appeal has evacuated all patients, some of whom were injured by shrapnel, to other health facilities.
Human Appeal is devastated that a medical facility that has saved thousands of lives was targeted in this attack. This is the fiftieth attack on a Syrian hospital this year, and the third time that Al - Imaan has been bombed.
But we are determined to continue providing medical care to Syrians. We are currently looking at a number of hospitals that need support, so we can continue to provide the life – saving care our cherished Al - Imaan Hospital offered within the coming weeks.

Syrians have endured over eight years of war. 13.2 million people need health assistance, but millions lack access to it. Due to the ongoing targeting of medical facilities and staff shortages, only about half of Syria’s health facilities are fully functional. In total, a staggering 11.7 million people need humanitarian assistance.
How you can help
There is a desperate need for ongoing medical care. Human Appeal still needs support for our continuing medical support, as we look to open Al Imaan Hospital in a new location in the coming weeks.
