31-year-old nurse Malakeh Harbaliyya treats a child at Hope hospital in the rebel held village of Al-Ghandura, northeast of Aleppo, on August 1, 2018. – In under a month, a crowd-funding campaign by the Turkey-based Independent Doctors Association and Britain’s CanDo charity gathered enough donations from around the world to rehabilitate and run a new hospital for a whole year.
