Share this

The primary aim of the operation is to fill the gaps in the provision of health services so that the hospital can provide consultations and deliveries and all related services for women as well as newborn consultations in one of the most populated areas of Syria.

Bab Al Hawa Hospital, supported by MAGNA, treated 47 victims of the chemical attack in the province. Seven of them, unfortunately, did not survive the consequences of the attack, ten are out of danger. The others are still fighting for their lives. In particular, they suffered from serious respiratory disorders, cyanosis, nervous disorders, foaming at the mouth, which are characteristic of the consequences of chemical weapons attacks. Three of our colleagues, medical workers, ended up in the intensive care unit after contact with patients affected by the chemical, we all believe that they will be fine.
