People in Syria are desperate for basic supplies as food shortages and a lack of medical supplies takes its toll, according to a Midland doctor.
Dr Omar Abdul Gabbar, an NHS spinal surgeon from Leicester and trustee of international aid charity Hand in Hand for Syria, said:
Civilians are dying of traumatic injuries that could be successfully operated on and from chronic and perfectly treatable conditions, if the medical supplies and expertise were available.
There is virtually no formula milk and growing food shortages across the country are affecting an estimated four million people.
People are desperate for the basics simply to survive.
