Al Hilal Hospital - Backup Facility

Given the increasing patient load and the numerous attempts by the Assad Government to bomb the Gift of the Givers Ar Rahma Hospital it was decided to have a second hospital as a backup facility. The Turkish Red Crescent generously donated a 1 million USD Field Hospital to Gift of the Givers.
