Fleeing from Russian air strikes, heavy artillery strikes on densely populated areas, from the ground forces of the Syrian army.

In short: an end in the form of Assad's rule.

Tal Tamr Hospital is an important drop-in center for diseased and injured persons in the region – even more so during the ongoing Turkish assaults. Therefore we support our partner organization Heyva Sor and participate in the funding of the hospital's operation cost.
