Running a Hospital in a Syrian Village Under Siege


Most of our support comes from donations from people inside the country, or people of Zabadani who are abroad. We also get some support from medical NGOs. We used to bring in our medical supplies through the Lebanese border, but that's gotten so dangerous. The hospital and clinics are targeted with rockets from the regime forces. They also target the medical staff to stop us from working

Now we get our supplies through the mountains on the Lebanon border using secret roads. We also get some supplies from neighboring villages through distributors we work with. The supplies we have now would be enough for about a month.

We are deeply worried that it won't be enough, especially with the ongoing siege and daily attacks by the regime forces. If the support stopped and all roads were blocked, we would be back to limiting our work to emergency cases only. We need $15,000 to continue to operate over the next few months.
