The brutal siege in Aleppo and continuous massacre of civilians is a tragedy that the world has witnessed but failed to intervene. Many hospitals have been specifically targeted leaving doctors to choose which patient to save due to a lack of medical equipment and the sheer influx of patients. Colours Of Hope, with your support, has embarked on a Medi-Campaign to raise funds for medical equipment. We implore you to donate towards this campaign. Every life is precious.
Despite the brutality, the medics, rescue workers, parents, and entire communities refuse to give up. They have rebuilt hospitals time and time again, saved families from under the rubble of non-stop airstrikes, and opened schools and libraries underground.
“We can’t even give our patients clean blankets. They are forced to use blankets filled with the blood of other patients. They don’t have a choice. The cleaning lady can’t find the time to wash or dry the blood-stained blankets. Patients die smelling their own blood. They die because of the lack of sterilisation and cold. We are constantly receiving huge influxes of civilians injured due to the shelling and bombing, which puts us under extreme and constant pressure to address all of their needs at once.” Baraa is a 23-year-old nurse in Eastern Aleppo.
Many errors have been made because we are overloaded with patients and have a shortage of medical staff. There are situations where patients die while waiting on a major surgery because doctors are so busy attending to dozens of other patients who are also in desperate need of medical care. “We lose patients that could’ve been saved if we had seconds to spare.”
