EMERGENCY APPEAL: EASTERN GHOUTA FUND
“Many children are passing out in their classrooms. I have some children who haven’t eaten anything in 2 days. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope that better days are on the way.”- Dr. Gazwan Bweidani, Eastern Ghouta
WE MUST ACT NOW!
SUPPORT THE 'EASTERN GHOUTA FUND'
Hundreds of civilians are being killed daily by airstrikes, and double that number wounded. The attacks disproportionately affect children, women, and the elderly. Many of the medical facilities in Eastern Ghouta have been shut down and those remaining are overloaded with the influx of patients, the most they have seen in the five years of besiegement. The medical staff are physically and emotionally at their limits but have no other options. Even the most basic medicines/medical supplies are in shortage with all aid supply lines cut off.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
"THERE ARE BETWEEN 600-1,000 NEW BIRTHS EVERY MONTH IN EASTERN GHOUTA; THE PEOPLE OF GHOUTA STILL HAVE HOPE FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE"
