4. SOUNDBITE (English) Jamie McGoldrick, Interim Deputy Special Coordinator and Resident Coordinator, Office of the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO):
“You can see the conditions that some places, there are no mattresses for children. You see people sleeping in the corridors. You go to the emergency room, and you see they are overcrowded. You see there's not enough material. We’ve even spoken to, went to the burns unit and we spoke to the doctor there, and she says she doesn't even have enough painkillers to treat. We saw a young child who was seven years of age, who 75 percent burned, and she didn't have the actual morphine to relieve the pain. The 7-year-old girl was screaming in pain. So that kind of thing tells you that the systems here are breaking down. We're not getting enough supply in here. We're not getting enough material in there to support the doctors, even cleaning the beds, cleaning the floors, that type of material, the basic stuff is not there.”
5. Various shots, WHO Mission staff in discussion with health workers and hospital leaders, hospital corridors and wards with displaced people
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Chris Black, Communications Officer, World Health Organization (WHO):
“The whole facility is really almost a town with a hospital inside it. There's more than 20,000 displaced people living in the in the health facility.”
7. Various shots, busy hospital corridors with people in beds and wheelchairs, WHO Mission staff in discussion with health workers and hospital leaders
8. SOUNDBITE (English) Chris Black, Communications Officer, World Health Organization (WHO):
“There's more than 700 patients there. 20 are in intensive care. But importantly, there's more than 200 that are ready to be discharged but just can't because they have no safe place to go. They have no homes to go to, no shelters to go to. “

10. SOUNDBITE (English) Jamie McGoldrick, Interim Deputy Special Coordinator and Resident Coordinator, Office of the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO):
“This hospital is under real, real pressure, and we have to do something to ease that pressure by bringing more material and more drugs, more support. The staff are working 24/7. They've got so many volunteers coming in here and they come to work every single day, despite the fact it's a very dangerous environment and then they're working so hard.”
