Syria has graced the headlines of all news outlets yet again as its Eastern Ghouta province has been made victim to attacks amidst aims to reach a truce, the main purpose of which was to facilitate the evacuation process of the Syrians trapped in the region. Several air raids were launched in Douma and Harasta by Syrian warplanes, with help from the Russians. The people in the region are being made victims to shelling, barrel bombs, chemical attacks and missiles! According to reports, within the past week, more than 550 civilians have been killed while several others have been injured.

Eastern Ghouta has been under rebel control since around 2013 after which the government imposed a siege on the area in an attempt to drive out the opposition fighters. It has been ridden by bombs and bad conditions for around 5 years now with no signs of improvement in the region. The latest attacks have destroyed several medical facilities, forcing the doctors to use expired drugs to treat the wounded.

It is difficult for the NGOs and humanitarian agencies to reach the area and help the people out. A lot of NGOs are working hard to get aid across to these people as they are in dire need of food and medical facilities.

HCI (Human Concern International), an NGO working for the betterment of people all over the world, is one of the few NGOs which are not only providing aid to the Syrian IDPs in other countries but are also helping the people in need within Syria!

HCI has been working hard helping out the people of Syria. However, in order to continue helping these distressed people out, HCI needs your help to assist them in their mission of providing aid to these people.
