For a city that has seen a large portion of its residents leave, and displaced people move in from other bombed areas, there’s an impressive sense of solidarity. People are stepping up to act as nurses or even surgeons because there’s simply nobody else to do it. Faced with the seriousness of the injuries and the risks involved in evacuating patients, many of the wounded are dying because they are not getting treatment or cannot be evacuated in time.
MSF Dr. Adrien Marteau, on the “A War Against Health Workers and Services" in Syria.
