AL HAYAT* HOSPITAL
We opened Al Hayat hospital on 1st May 2017. A former maternity and obstetric hospital that had closed because of lack of resources and funding. We reopened it as a hospital providing emergency medical and surgical care retaining some of the focus on obstetrics.
There are an estimated 1.5 million people living around this area, and while there are other medical services around this city, the poorest and most vulnerable still struggle to access life-saving medical care, especially if they have no money to pay for their care. Al Hayat works on a not for profit basis and treats the poorest and most vulnerable free of charge.
We are raising support for our medical teams and are keen to ask people to support us with standing orders on a monthly basis as this is the most secure way for us to run our medical projects. Each month there are overheads to cover for each medical team including supplies and medications for the hospitals, salaries for the doctors and nurses, fuel for the generators and ambulances, water for the hospitals.
Every penny donated to this medical appeal goes directly to our medical projects in Syria as our UK team are all volunteers and we aim to eliminate the overheads that most charities in the UK would have.
