After the recent bombings in Aleppo, Al-Imdaad foundation has increased humanitarian aid to the territory and has extended relief to medical assistance. The organization is, therefore, urging all community members to assist with alleviating the situation on the ground.
“After the recent bomb onslaught we had to intensify our relief, start providing different forms of food and medical aid,” Said Trustee and International projects co-ordinator of al-Imdaad foundation, Qari Ziyaad Patel.
Since the conflict began five years ago, Aleppo has been at the centre of the conflict, which has resulted in a humanitarian crisis.
“Al-Imdaad foundation was already assisting the people in Aleppo well before the heavy onslaught as part of our flour campaign,” Patel said.
In recent weeks, the bombings intensified, which resulted in the death of numerous humanitarian aid workers, including the only surviving paediatrician, as well as the destruction of vital infrastructure, such as clinics and hospitals.
“Right now we find that all infrastructure is being targeted. We also received a report that some of the reservoirs are being targeted. This goes against all ethics of human kind,” Patel explained.
In addition, to sustaining humanitarian requirements in Aleppo, Al Imdaad extends its services to the greater Syria, which has proved to be logistically challenging.
“As we are in the month of Sha’baan, very soon it will be Ramadan – these are holy months. So open your hearts and open your pockets,” Patel urged.
