Story

In 2016 we crowdfunded a hospital. In 2018 we came together to keep it open. Today, I ask you to do the same.

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. People came together believing in hope, solidarity and the ability of individuals to make a difference. And what a difference they made.

Hope is special. As the world’s first crowdfunded hospital built in conflict, it is also the only specialist children’s hospital in the area, offering a rare refuge for locals, returnees and internally displaced people. When faced with closure in 2018, the international community rallied and saved Hope Hospital from closure. Once again, people power saved Hope.


Support Hope Hospital

Hope Hospital is free for all patients, and must meet general running costs - exacerbated by the dangers and costs of working in conflict. Right now they are critically in need of funds and if they can't raise enough money to cover the hospital, Hope Hospital will have to close its doors. If you believe in the importance of Hope Hospital, you can support its future directly via the website of the IDA - the Independent Doctors Association that runs the hospital.

 


What Hope has achieved

Hope Hospital provides paediatric services supporting a community of 170,000, including the local community and a great number of internally displaced people. The hospital serves children under 18, and treats approximately 100 in-patients per month, as well as providing important consultations for approximately 3,723 outpatients.

Hope provides:

Vital outpatient consultations to all children, offered 6 days a week, free of charge.

Inpatient medical services 24/7, including neonatal and premature infant care, intensive care and minor surgeries free of charge.

Education and coaching on good IYCF (Infant and Young Child Feeding) and hygiene practices to staff at the outpatient and inpatient facilities.


The need for support now

The conflict in Syria is now in its eighth year and has now become international with multiple countries and groups involved in warfare. Internationally supported airstrikes continuously bombard civilian areas destroying hospitals and schools, killing civilians and forcing thousands to flee for their lives.

In April this year the situation worsened as humanitarian corridors (de-militarised zones, or safe spaces) in the North West were subjected to shelling and violence causing 330,000 people to flee their homes. In addition, 25 health facilities were targeted, damaged by air strikes and shelling. Ambulances have also been targeted and destroyed claiming the lives of NGO Health workers. Hope Hospital is in Jarabulus, one of the areas receiving huge new waves of displaced people. Many require urgent healthcare and support having travelled long distances and are living in undignified, squalid shelter conditions. Vulnerable pregnant women and young children are among those arriving in great need of care and support.

The Doctors and Nurses at Hope Hospital are relentless in their dedication to providing medical services to all in need, despite the many dangers and difficulties they face.

With your support Hope Hospital can continue providing its services amidst rising and critically urgent needs. A contribution will support with medicines, medical supplies and equipment, therapeutic foods and hospital maintenance essential for keeping the power on so that life saving surgery can be carried out. They will also support staff salaries which is critical given the lessening number of clinicians remaining in Syria and choosing to work amidst knowledge of targeted health facility attacks.
