Medical supplies scarce in Syria's Hama

Medics struggle to treat injured in underground makeshift clinics with little medicine and few doctors.

    There is a severe shortage of medicine and doctors in the Syrian city of Hama. The hospitals have either been bombed by President Bashar al-Assad's army or transformed into bases for rebel fighters. 
     
    People injured in fighting are brought to makeshift treatment rooms, set up in people’s homes and basements.
