Without the facilities or the ways to reconstruct their lives. When poor neighborhoods are struck by disasters, the impacts are lasting and immediate.
It becomes a lot more challenging when we consider remote places. Where aid-workers cannot quickly reach, and in times of natural disaster, this typically becomes even harder.
Over the last 11 years, we have reacted to crises all over the world. Including disputes in Palestine, drought and famine throughout Africa, earthquakes in Pakistan. A war in Shaam, and conflict in Yemen.

The medical facility is totally geared up with expert services consisting of ITU. Labor wards, operation theaters, CT scans, ultrasounds, in addition to highly qualified, expert doctors. The healthcare facility has been hit during attacks numerous times. And has moved locations within the country and even holed up.
Nearly 10 years of war has left millions in immediate requirement of support. As medical facilities and schools have been targeted. Leaving the country with practically non-existent infrastructures.
The Al Huda healthcare facility was made a reality due to the continued commitment and assistance of generous volunteers. 83 ambulances were driven to Shaam from the UK as part of 3 convoys. Convoys sent out vital medical equipment, food, and aid products for the people of Shaam.

Volunteers travel for a week at a time and invest days packing food parcels. Or winter season packs for hundreds of households who would otherwise fight with absolutely nothing.

They often invest weeks and months prior to preparing and raising funds for their release. Where they work long and tedious days while immersing themselves. In a brand-new method of life and understanding the suffering of those they are assisting.
