The courage and strength of the doctors and nurses in Aleppo is really unbelievable and incredibly inspiring. As head pediatric nurse Malak says, “I love the children here, I love my country, and I will not give up practicing my profession.” If heroes like Malak can keep going, then we have to do everything we can – even though we might be far away – to help keep their life-saving work going.
Whilst governments refuse to take real action to save Syrian lives, by coming together we can provide the equipment needed to open an entirely new children’s hospital. This month a group of Syrian, European, and American doctors will be driving equipment across Europe in a People’s Convoy to Syria on December 17th, stocked with medical supplies which can save lives immediately and a message that ‘we the people of the world stand with Syria’s lifesavers’.
We know it’s easy to feel powerless, but this is something you can do that can make a real difference. If we can raise £91,432, we can outfit an entire children’s hospital. Syria’s doctors and nurses give everything, we have to give what we can.
If the doctors, nurses, and volunteers in Aleppo haven’t given up on life, neither can we.
Help them save lives in the most dangerous place on earth.
