About this campaign

The past month has seen a massive escalation of aerial attacks in Syria. The loss of life is unbearable.

Hospitals are being destroyed and women & children centre's targeted with bombs. Our partners have reported further use of chemical weapons.

In the space of two days, two of our partner projects in Syria have been hit by airstrikes. Hand in Hand for Syria's Surgical Hospital in the Idlib province has been completely destroyed by 4 airstrikes. 

Fadi Al Dairi Hand, Hand in Hand for Syria’s Country Director, said: “We are devastated to have to close the door of a hospital serving a community of over one million people. The timing couldn't be worse. This was the only surgical hospital within a 50km radius. The loss of these medical services, including surgical and reproductive health services, will have a staggering effect on vulnerable communities affected by this conflict".

Our partners Women Now for Development have also been targeted. The centre in Kafr Batna, Eastern Ghouta was hit and destroyed by an airstrike. Six civilians were killed. In a statement released by our partners, they said: “We are used to life with the bombs, but in recent days it has turned into a frenzy. Two of our colleagues lost their homes, which were destroyed by bombs. One of the workers survived with her children, but another child who had been in her care was killed. In Ghouta, two of our colleagues lost their husbands because of the shelling."

This is an emergency appeal to help people in the aftermath of this horrific bombing campaign. Please donate what you can to pay for shelter for those who no longer have homes, meals for those who no longer have access to food, and funds to repair the hospitals and centre's that have taken the most damage.
