Project Report | Jan 2, 2024
January 2024 Project Update

By Jamie Cross | Senior Emergency Programs Manager

After more than 12 years of hostilities, people in Syria continue to have their daily lives impacted by this multifaceted crisis. In 2024, it is estimated that 16.7 million people will require humanitarian assistnce which is an increase from last year. Of these, 5.5 million people are displaced including over 2 million people who live in last resort sites. 

GlobalMedic is continuing to respond to the needs in Syria. We recently sent our 58th sea container of humanitarian aid containing Family Emergency Kits, liquid soap, and additional water purification sachets. These items will support families impacted by the ongoing conflict as well as resulting impacts from last year's earthquake. 

Family Emergency Kits provide reliable access to clean drinking water for up to a year. Each kit contains a water purification system that is easy to use and portable. When families lose access to clean drinking water, rates of water borne illnesses skyrocket. Not only this, but lack of proper hygiene practices can further promote the spread of illnesses. Hygiene supplies are included in each kit to ensure that families retain the ability to maintain good hygiene. Solar lights are then added to provide a sense of comfort and normalcy.

We are preparing to send another container early in the new year which will contain additional Family Emergency Kits as well as Emergency Food Kits.

Emergency Food Kits are assembled by volunteers, and combine culturally appropriate food items. By providing families with options, they are able to decide which nutritious pantry staple fits their family's dietary preferences best. These pantry staples include rice, green lentils and chickpeas. With millions of families across Syria facing severe food insecurity, distributing shelf-stable food items is crucial.

It is critical to keep aid flowing into Syria. Both kits provide families affected by conflict with simple, effective solutions. 

Please donate today to help us send more aid to those affected by this ongoing conflict in Syria!
