A Day in the Emergency Room in Aleppo...
Aleppo
By Simon Letellier
18 Jun 2013

During the armed conflict in Syria, hospitals and their staff are frequently targeted by Bashar Al Assad's regime. The Syrian regime considers aiding rebels in any way an act of terrorism. The revolution has changed the stability throughout the country and now even large hospitals are in need of medical supplies, equipment, and staff.

Doctors and their staff at this makeshift hospital in Aleppo are overwhelmed by the amount of civilians and Free Syrian soldiers wounded by regime airstrikes, snipers, and various types of bombardments. The photographs were taken in the emergency room of a field hospital in Aleppo. Doctors were on standby in the emergency room cleaning medical tools and attending to patients when the bombs began to fall. Near the hospital's location, an airstrike commenced and the wounded begin pouring in.

The first of the injured to make it to the hospital doors was a young girl. She was carried in by an FSA soldier who found her lying next to her deceased mother in the street after the bombs hit. The young girl was covered in blood and peppered with shrapnel, screaming for her mother while her mother's corpse was carried into the hospital.

The soldier explained that the little girl and her mother were walking together when the bomb exploded nearby, immediately killing the mother. Doctors worked frantically to extract shrapnel from the little girl’s body. After giving her drugs to calm her down, they proceeded to the X-Ray room. The young girl's father arrived from work and discovered his injured daughter laying on the surgical table, then collapsed and began to cry. Due to the quick response of the medical staff, the little girl survived but two young Free Syrian Army soldiers who arrived shortly after her died.

Another casualty was a young man who was transported to the hospital by a soldier from the Free Syrian Army. The man was shot twice by a sniper. The first bullet went through his chest and the second struck him in his back and was still in his body. The doctor hurried to stop hemorrhaging and didn't hesitate to put his finger into the hole to stop the bleeding. To calm the patient down, they gave him drugs and taped his eyes shut to avoid hallucinations. After an X-Ray, he was sent to the operation room. Doctors did not succeed in removing the bullet from his back but he later survived.

This is a daily occurrence for the doctors and staff of this hospital in Aleppo and many others throughout the country that are doing their best with what they have to stop the bleeding of Syria's conflict.

Mining for Sapphires in Madagascar 5

Antsioroa mine, near Tulear, where it would take days to drive to the nearest telephone, school or hospital. The isolation of the deposits draws prospectors. Shantytowns spring up on the banks of rivers, as whole communities migrate. For these people living outside official society, the sapphire trade offers the possibility that their children might escape the poverty they were born in.
