Aleppo battle: Welsh doctor's Syrian hospital project

A Welsh doctor has helped raise more than £180,000 to build a children's hospital on the outskirts of embattled Syrian city, Aleppo.

Dr Saleya Ahsan, an emergency doctor at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, is on a 6,000-mile round trip to Syria to build a unit to serve 66,000 children.

"The situation has worsened to the point there's no functioning hospital within east Aleppo," said Dr Ashan.

Thousands are trapped in Aleppo as the four-year Syrian civil war continues.
