It is our pleasure to introduce you to Anas at the Iman Hospital in Aleppo. We met him during our work in Greece several years ago while we were both caring for refugees there. We were impressed with his professionalism and deep commitment to caring for Middle Eastern refugees. Our appreciation for him deepened when he went above and beyond the call of our partnership as he helped our COHI team get out of the country during a military coup when the borders closed a few years ago. He is an all-around outstanding man, and we are so proud to support him and his team.
Want to know more about what Anas, COHI, and YOU did to keep the last specialty Pediatric and Maternity hospital in West Aleppo open this year? Watch the video and hear about our shared impact directly from Anas.
We want to be able to continue to show up for the brave Syrian mothers, children and health care providers caring for them—and we can’t do it without your help. A donation from you to support this work would be a tremendous way to close out our 2018 fundraising, gifting COHI a strong start to meeting this 2019 goal. You’ve already demonstrated your commitment to the people of Syria; how about closing out 2018 with an action that helps to extend COHI’s work into 2019?
Supporting moms and babies in Syria has been one of COHI's top priorities for the last few years. We are committed to funding one of the last hospitals and we love the mission of Human Appeal. They are:
Working across the globe to strengthen humanity in the face of poverty, social injustice and natural disaster. Through the provision of immediate relief and establishment of self sustaining development programmes, we aim to invest in real, effective solutions.
We appreciate our partners so much and nothing helps more than sending them the funds they need to keep their clinics and hospital open. Thank you for your support!

Update: COHI's work on the border
By Leah Little - COO
COHI is proud to announce that we are taking another delegation to the Texas/Mexico border in November. This group is a special one; we'll have COHI Board and Staff plus a clinician and volunteers on the ground serving at the clinic. The most recent estimates are 175 people per day coming through the clinic we staff. Please stay tuned for more from our upcoming trip!
We're also still hearing news about the families who are not released and remain in custody. The amount of time children have spent in custody has nearly doubled since last year. The longer they stay in these tent cities, the worse the long-term effects will be. We are working to expand our medical and psychological support across the border – but the worse this gets, the harder recovery will be. The recent New York Times article describes the situation well.
