Eastern Ghouta, besieged by the Syrian regime since 2013, is restricted from humanitarian aid and the first victims of these restrictions are children. In this zone, people have stopped counting the number of deaths associated with malnutrition. An old Syrian saying goes, "No one is starving in Syria", unfortunately, the sad reality of the country today is that they are.
UOSSM, which supports the intensive care unit of the Duma hospital, as well as several other humanitarian organizations on the ground, are doing everything possible to face these medical shortages but these efforts are insufficient in the face of the ever-increasing number of victims that require daily treatments and health care. We are facing a massive humanitarian crisis that is getting worse and worse.
