THE STORY:

Tens of thousands of people have fled Aleppo as Syrian government forces take control of the city's eastern neighborhoods following months of besiegement and aerial bombardment. The United Nations reported this week that families are being shot in cold blood in their homes as their neighborhoods are retaken. The people of Aleppo are caught between medieval sieges, the horror of aerial bombardment and house-by-house retribution There are no hospitals operating in eastern Aleppo. Civilians have no access to trauma care and fear the slightest illness or injury. Even before the recent months of bombardment, there were thought to be only 31 doctors to care for a quarter million people. All told there have been more than 400 attacks on medical facilities in Syria. More than 750 medical workers have died. The war has taken an especially heavy toll on children. Over a third of civilians cut off from aid in eastern Aleppo are children IRC aid workers are meeting people who have fled Aleppo as they reach Al Dana, identifying families in desperate need of food, fuel and emergency supplies including mattresses, blankets, soap and towels. To help ensure people can purchase the basics they need, the IRC will be giving $100 to 500 of the most vulnerable families. The IRC is hoping to secure more funding to reach all 800 of the newly arrived families in Al Dana, as well as to help any future arrivals.
