Summary

COHI supports one of the remaining hospital networks operating in the Aleppo and Idlib region left to care for the citizens in the cities and surrounding rural areas, which has been a theater of war. Due to frequent hospital bombings, there are incredibly limited resources for mothers and infants to receive healthcare, and general supplies are low. COHI and partner organization Human Appeal are committed to delivering much needed supplies, resources and support to the last health care center.

Challenge

"Over the last several years, direct, targeted attacks on health care institutions that are clearly civilian facilities have escalated greatly," says Dr. Michael Van Rooyen, an emergency physician and the director of Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, "and Syria's been the most notable and notorious example."

Solution

COHI and partner organization Human Appeal are committed to delivering much needed supplies, resources and support to the last health care center in the region.

Long-Term Impact

Our partners at Human Appeal are still showing up every day knowing that they are being targeted for doing their jobs. Bombs are still falling, food is still scarce, and the future for the 200,000 women inside of Syria who will give birth this year is still unknown. COHI is still raising funds, one $1400 day at a time. This is the sum required to keep the lights on, the staff paid, the medicines flowing, for one day at Al-Iman Hospital.
