Story

Hope Hospital for children provides a vital lifeline in Northern Syria. Set up through the extraordinary People’s Convoy campaign, after the previous hospital was bombed out of existence, Hope Hospital is a triumph of humanity.

As the world’s first crowdfunded hospital it’s the only specialist children’s hospital in the area, offering a rare refuge for locals, returnees and internally displaced people.

Every day the Independent Doctors Association provide a special care baby unit, a dedicated malnutrition clinic, out-patient care,24-hour emergency care and other vital facilities.   

Saving Hope means saving more children like Lilas and Lilian

When twin sisters Lillas and Lilian were born a month early, they were fighting for their lives. Our team quickly diagnosed them with respiratory distress syndrome, and admitted them to the special care baby unit. After a week of intensive care and phototherapy treatment the sisters were able to go home. Five months on they’re healthy and thriving.

Continue to support brave Nurse Malak

Just two months after Hope Hospital was opened, Head Nurse Malak and our team, conducted a full blood exchange (similar to a blood transfusion) on 4-day old baby Mustafa. It was the first time this type of life-saving procedure was performed at Hope Hospital.

CanDo’s founder Dr. Rola Hallam was so moved by Nurse Malak’s dedication, she focused on her story in her recent TED Talk. 

Throw out a direct lifeline

In just one year our medical team have treated over 16,300 children, provided 47,600 consultations, and tackled 444 emergencies. And in the last 3 months, we’ve treated 120 children who’ve been severely injured by undetonated shells.

While we seek long term funding we urgently need to raise £68,000 to fund Hope Hospital for a further two months. We are determined to continue to serve the 55,000 local children who rely on our hospital. For as little as £8, you have the power to change a child’s life. Join us to help keep a beacon of Hope shining in Syria. Thank you.

Thank you :)

On behalf of IDA and Hope Hospital team, I would like to thank you all, our heroes, the CanDoers, because you did it and contributed to raising £27,157. Your financial support helps us continue our mission and to treat those amazing children in our community. The generous support of individuals like you all makes it possible for our organization to exist and make a difference while saving children's lives. With your support, we have a healthy community and a better place to live. I would like also to thank our great partner CanDo who believes in us and will send us the funds raised despite not reach the full goal. We both believe its the right exception (to all-or-nothing fundraising) since every penny helps keep the hospital open. CanDoers, Thank you all from the bottom of the heart.. You really did it :)
