THE STORY:

Ashleigh Millat wrote -

The Humanitarian Situation Inside Syria

  • 10.8 million people (more than half of Syria’s pre-war population) in need of humanitarian aid
  • 6.4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs)
  • 3 million civilians trapped in areas without access to humanitarian assistance
  • More than half of hospitals destroyed or damaged; many seeking medical care in neighboring countries
  • 3,000 of the country’s 20,000 schools damaged or destroyed
  • 60 percent of hospitals and 38 percent of primary health facilities damaged or destroyed
  • More than 10,000 children killed
  • Malnutrition and starvation
  • 4 million children at risk; nearly 3 million dropped out of school
  • Aid promises not being met

 

With the support of our generous donors and grants from our partners, SRD funds and operates a number of humanitarian aid projects that address the most urgent needs of food and medical care inside Syria and for refugees in neighboring Jordan. Beneficiaries are determined based upon each family’s needs and individual circumstances. Priority is always given to impoverished families who have lost their main breadwinner, those who have been injured in conflict and require immediate medical attention and other families in need.

In order to address the need for medical care inside Syria, SRD has put in place various programs to benefit the injured Syrians. Our mobile medical points inside Syria provide rapid first-aid relief for the injured. We supply existing field hospitals inside Syria with medical supplies and equipment to better prepare them to handle the needs of injured Syrians. Our pediatric primary healthcare centers provide essential medical care for the most vulnerable victims in this conflict: children. And our hospital network in the cities of Aleppo, Daraa and Idleb provide advanced, comprehensive medical care for the sick and injured.
