Emergency Food Crisis
Since Syria was hit with the ‘Arab Spring’ riots, protests and civil unrest, security has been severely depressed. Despite rigorous political efforts and international pressure to end the crisis in Syria, violence across all 14 governorates of the country continues unabated. As a result, millions of conflict-affected Syrians have been displaced and are wholly dependent on external agencies for sustenance.
Amidst the escalation of food insecurity, this emergency operation aims to avert hunger, improve nutritional intake and ultimately save lives. Monthly rations of cereals, pulses, vegetable oil, sugar and salt are handed to households who are deprived of their main source of income, whilst supplementary feeding programs have been set up to address micronutrient deficiencies amongst young children at risk of acute malnutrition.
Key Areas of Expenditure:
- General Distribution Foodstuffs
- Supplementary Feeding & Nutrition support rations
- Transport and delivery
- Logistics and operations
- Distribution point setups
