Crowdfunded Hospital is giving hope in Syria.
In a country where healthcare facilities and professionals have been systematically targeted, one hospital in Syria rose from the ashes to treat tens of thousands of sick children. On the 5th April, this hospital will celebrate two years of existence.
Hope Hospital, run by the Independent Doctors Association, is the world’s first crowdfunded hospital built in a conflict area. A triumph of humanity, the children’s hospital was built two years ago after a British crowdfunding campaign went viral and people around the world gave over £240,000 to rebuild it in a safer area after it was bombed into oblivion.
Since its creation, Hope Hospital for children has provided 98,707 consultations, checked 26,309 children for malnutrition and provided specialist treatment to 52,846 children.
