After years of war and debilitating sanctions, for those who have remained in Syria having life-saving medicines and professional care is extremely difficult. In Syria there are three privately run hospitals which have been active for several decades, two in Damascus (one run by an Italian and the second one by a French religious order), and one (run by the French order of the Maristes) in Aleppo. These hospital, which have never stopped offering free of charge care to everyone, regarding of religion or race, are understandably in dire condition. International sanctions block the import of essential goods, including software update for medical equipments.
