Syria. The protagonists of "Open Hospital" project

Find here all the episodes of the reportage by Aldo Gianfrate from Aleppo and Damascus and discover how life can start again thanks to medical care in one of the three hospital we support in Syria.

As a concrete answer to the request for help from the Syrian people, thanks to the initiative of Cardinal Mario Zenari, apostolic nuncio in Syria, and the support of the Department for the Integral Human Development Service, the “Open Hospitals” project was conceived in 2016 and became operational in 2017.

The main objective is to ensure free access to medical treatment for Syrians in poor conditions, through the strengthening of three non-profit hospitals: the Italian Hospital and the French Hospital in Damascus, and the St. Louis Hospital in Aleppo. This project has already provided more than 15.000 free treatments to poor Syrians (as of 15/01/2019) and aims to reach 50.000 within the next two years.

We told on Instagram the stories of some of the protagonists of the project, click on each and find out more
