Aleppo is burning - our response
As the situation in Aleppo escalates, Human Appeal is ramping up its response to deal with the growing tide of hostilities.
Since April 22, 250 people have been killed in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, in nine days of deadly bombardments. 40 of the dead have been children.
From the 15 - 30 April, Human Appeal has reached 42,193 people, distributed 9,000 ready to eat food packs and is distributing 9,000 bread packs every day. In the coming week, Human Appeal will distribute another 4,000 ready to eat food packs.
“This is an emergency and requires an emergency response,” said Othman Moqbel, Chief Executive, Human Appeal. “The world cannot sit idle as there is a massacre in Aleppo on a daily basis. As one of the most trusted charities in Syria, we will continue our vital work to continue helping those most in need over the coming days, weeks and months,” Mr Moqbel adds.
The Manchester-based charity is at the forefront of aid in Aleppo and over the past 5 years since the Syria conflict erupted has established itself as one of the leading charities in and around Syria.
There are currently fears that NGOs will start leaving Aleppo as the violence escalates and aid workers are targeted.
The charity runs Imaan Hospital in Aleppo, a key centre for women and children who’ve been affected by the conflict. The hospital has provided care for over 8500 children and 7600 women.
Human Appeal today is reaffirming its commitment to the people of Aleppo as it urgently appeals for donations to continue it’s aid work.
