An Update On Our Hospital in Darkoush

Below is the communication received from Dr Ahmad Ghandour, the professional selected by us to manage the Gift of the Givers Hospital in Syria. He is a cardiac surgeon but has to practice all fields of medicine given the shortage of personnel and the dire situation in Syria.

In recent days the bombing has been very intense in and around the region of the hospital with numerous casualties and at least 12 fatalities. We had "lost" communication during the last 5 days which was very worrying. Dr Ahmed's response is self-explanatory; please excuse his English as he really tries his utmost to communicate in the best possible way.

The needs are staggering, not only in terms of medical supplies, but food also. If you have it in your soul to share whatever you can then with a generous heart, a good wish, a sincere prayer and a positive thought please deposit into Gift of the Givers, Standard Bank, Pietermaritzburg, Account No. 052278611, Branch Code 057525. You will not receive any monetary benefit in return but the deep-seated prayer of a dying mother, a hungry child, a broken society and a forgotten nation will more than recompense whatever you part with.  May the Almighty bless you for your kindness.
