Karam Foundation is outraged by the recent chemical attack on Syrian civilians. On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, the Syrian regime launched an air raid that released toxic gas, suspected to be sarin, on the town of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province in Syria. 58 civilians were killed, including 11 children. More than 300 civilians were injured in the attack.
Hours later, the Khan Sheikhoun SCD center and Al-Rahma Hospital, where victims of the attack were being treated, were targeted by air strikes. The center is no longer in service. The death toll is expected to rise, as medics and rescue workers struggle to save the victims with the limited resources they have.
For the past week, Idlib province, and other parts of the country including Ghouta, have been targeted by countless air strikes. This latest attack is the deadliest chemical attack in Syria since the Syrian regime used sarin gas in an attack that killed hundreds of civilians in Ghouta in August 2013.
Karam Foundation prides itself in providing Smart Aid to the communities that we serve. We ask the people what they need and do our best to deliver aid to where it is most needed. Following the attacks, we asked our contacts on the ground what they need, their response was: “Nothing you can send will save us. We need your prayers.”
“Another war crime was committed against the Syrian people on the eve of the Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria. We demand world leaders prioritize saving the lives of the innocent who are dying every single day. The Syrian genocide must end and justice must prevail. Without its people, there is neither reconstruction nor a future of Syria.” — Lina Sergie Attar, CEO Karam Foundation
