In my role as a medical doctor, I have travelled inside Syria during the current conflict and worked in some of the field hospitals in Idlib and with the Aleppo Medical Council. I witnessed first hand the atrocities and suffering Syrian refugees are trying to escape from.

Civilians in Ghouta had been under siege for 5 years and experienced constant bombardment- no human being should have to live through this trauma. Yet again they are displaced while many family members have been killed needlessly. We CANNOT wait until a political compromise is negotiated to help the vulnerable. Aid efforts MUST CONTINUE! 
My family and I have been fundraising and working with Syrian refugees for over 7 years now and have collectively raised over half a million pounds for this cause. However, we cannot become complacent as this is only a drop in the ocean of assistance that is needed.
Thank you for all your support so far; I hope that you can continue to support our work in the year ahead as we are aiming to facilitate emergency aid in every critically hit area as we can. We are in this for the long run- for as long as the war continues and families need help.

We're asking you to DIG DEEP for ongoing projects that we have helped set up through this charity!! The need for medical & emergency supplies is dire!
