Who we are

Protecting and saving children caught in the horrors of war so that they don’t just survive, but thrive.


Founded by Dr Rola Hallam, CanDo was born when the last children’s hospital in Aleppo was destroyed by bombs. We mobilised a global community to build Hope Hospital for children - the first ever crowdfunded hospital. 
We are a boutique not-for-profit startup, making a big impact with our small and mighty all woman, specialist team; since then we’ve delivered 16 lifesaving health projects reaching 982,000 people in just 4 years and advocated on global stages to mitigate the cause as well as treating the symptoms.
