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!

This week at COHI, we're focusing on the ongoing crisis in Syria and its devastating effects on women and children in a war zone.

Unfortunately, this crisis hit too close to home last week, when one of our partner pharmacists at the hospital in Aleppo was killed in a bombing strike, along with her husband and five children. Inaam Alabood worked tirelessly to serve those in need, even as she was in need herself. As Human Appeal said, "We are all the poorer for not having Inaam working to help people. She is irreplaceable and will be greatly missed."

Though our hearts are heavy, we will continue to aid Human Appeal in providing direct clinical care for the 5,000 mothers and children requiring specialty care each month at the last remaining maternity and pediatric hospital in Aleppo. Your donation will help make that a reality.

In gratitude and in memory of Inaam Alabood,

Sera Bonds

The conflict in Syria has created the largest global displacement crisis in recent history. Almost 5 million people have fled to other countries, 500,000 people have died, and many more have been injured. The situation near Ghouta is still dire.

Most recently we have used funds to distribute cooked meals and bread, mainly to the most vulnerable women and children in Ghouta. We are also sending money to help get women and children to a nearby hospital when necessary, since so many health care facilities have been damaged during airstrikes and shelling. COHI will continue to support the families of this region for as long as possible.

Thank YOU for your continued support of moms and babies in Syria.
