Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our Project Pure Hope JustGiving page.

Project Pure Hope is a humanitarian healthcare initiative founded by a group of senior doctors and healthcare leaders who are deeply concerned about the plight of children affected by the Middle East conflict. They are committed to providing life-saving medical care and support to victims of this conflict, regardless of their nationality, religion, or ethnicity, while developing and improving skills for the best healthcare pathway in these situations.

We are working with local and international partners to transfer children requiring complex treatment and care to the UK. This initiative is important as some of these children require specialist, multidisciplinary medical treatment which is available in the UK but currently unavailable in the region. It will also deliver remote services/telemedicine to the hospitals and clinics that are struggling to cope with the overwhelming needs in the area.

We are grateful for the support and active engagement we have had by multiple leaders and organizations across the NHS including leading hospitals in London and nationally, expressing commitment and interest in being part of this initiative. We believe that between this multifaceted group we will be well placed to offer support for any child’s physical and mental health needs.

Donations

We're raising funds to support the treatment of children with complex injuries from the Middle East conflict in the UK. These injuries are devastating and severe, they often involve severe burns and lost limbs. In addition there is severe emotional trauma as a result of losing family. Some children not only have injuries, but also have cancer, and they have had to stop their treatment. These children need high quality, specialized care for a chance at recovery. There is currently no tax payer or UK government funding for Project Pure Hope.

Treatment will be delivered privately using expertise of UK specialist centres. Funds will be utilized for this specific purpose.

Donations are open to all and will only be used to cover costs directly related to the treatment and rehabilitation of the children. Funds will be used to support the children’s care in the UK (where possible), and when required: to offer expert support remotely.

Project Pure Hope team members are working pro bono, and the hospitals will do their work at cost.

Funds are held by UCLH Charity with an agreed management protocol. UCLH Charity are operating a 100% donation policy - so all funds raised will only be used for the costs associated with the treatment and rehabilitation of the children.

Our immediate objective

‍is to deliver urgent medical attention to the most severe cases that we have identified - the initial £1million that we are currently fundraising for will be 100% allocated to travel via medically equipped aeroplanes, accommodation, specialist medical care and related expenses for the children and their guardians, including remote care by specialist UK hospitals where appropriate.

Our longer term goals

are to learn from this healthcare project in order to establish a legacy through Project Pure Hope, to enable children severely affected by any future conflict to be able to leverage the pathways and resources that we are establishing today.
