From CanDoers and the people that we helped.
The first ever crowd-funded hospital
After a children’s hospital got bombed out of existence, in two weeks we raised the money to build the first-ever crowd-funded hospital. Three months later, Hope Hospital opened.In just one year the team at Hope treated over 16,300 children, provided 47,600 consultations, and tackled 444 emergencies.
Coping with the effects of war
Our local partner Insan trained 14 women to deliver a 12 week long psychological support programme to women in their communities. The 14 women field team are also receiving continuous psychological support from the Insan team.
Our local partner Hurras developed a magazine to increase children’s awareness of ways to protect themselves and cope during times of bombing and violence. The magazine, that reached 6,000 children, also instills values of tolerance, solidarity, mutual understanding and peace.
Access to protein sources
Under siege for years, people in Eastern Ghouta were suffering from severe malnutrition and starvation due to lack of access to fresh produces. Our local partner Ghiras Al Nahda taught communities how to grow mushrooms under siege conditions. As results, kilos and kilos of mushrooms were safely harvested, benefitting over 1,000 people.

Local humanitarians are the beacons of light in the darkness of war
During times of crisis it’s the local doctors, nurses and aid workers that shine through the destruction to make a real difference.
Local humanitarians do 75% of the critical aid work, yet they receive less than 1% of direct funding. *
This imbalance of aid is similar for crises across the world.
As a result, millions of people are suffering or dying needlessly.
