The relentless attacks you saw in ‘FOR SAMA’ caused tremendous destruction in Idlib - the effects of which continue today. Now, with the additional devastating threat of a Covid-19 outbreak, the people of Syria need your help more than ever. Please give what you can to support the medics and humanitarians saving lives in these devastating times.*
Relentless aerial bombardment of Idlib by the Syrian regime and Russia has forced ongoing mass displacement, with more than half a million people having to flee their homes since December. A large portion of the population is living in makeshift camps where it’s impossible to practice social distancing. An outbreak in this densely populated province would be disastrous.
In their latest offensive on Idlib, Russian and Syrian warplanes bombed over 80 hospital and medical facilities, completely annihilating any health care for the people of Idlib and creating a state of emergency.
In all of Syria, 6, 500 is the maximum number of Covid-19 cases that could be adequately treated:
There is 1.4 doctor for every 10, 000 people
There is 1 hospital bed for every 1,363 people
There is 1 ICU bed for every 20, 788 people
When I have shown my film, people ask me what they can do? Today I am asking you to please give what you can to support Dr Hamza’s colleagues who are still risking their lives to save others under the bombs and the new threat of Covid-19. Every penny you give will go directly to support the work of these heroes.
While the world refuses to protect Syrians please give what you can to those left picking up the pieces.
In solidarity, Waad x
