Aid for Families in Syria

As we move into the new year, Syrians are still facing conflict and violence. There are a multitude of challenges the country is dealing with, making it one of the most complex humanitarian emergencies in the world. Basic services are struggling, chloera has spread across the country and economic indicators continue to worsen. As a result, 15.3 million people are estimated to require humanitarian assistance in 2023. This is the highest level of need since the start of the conflict.

GlobalMedic is responding by sending Family Emergency Kits and Emergency Food Kits to Syria. All donations go towards procurement and distribution of aid in Syria.

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 such as COVID-19. As the pandemic continues, and Syria is among the hardest hit nations in the Middle East, hygiene supplies are included in each kit. Solar lights are then added to provide a sense of comfort and normalcy.

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.

For over a decade, Syrians have been faced with conflict and violence. Throughout this war, civilians have been the most impacted group. It is estimated that a minimum of 350,000 civilians have been killed. This number is what is confirmed by the United Nations, but it is understood to be most likely closer to 600,000. Over 22 million individuals have fled their home, with approximately 7 million being international displaced. Infrastructure has been damaged or completely destroyed, leaving families struggling to access basic necessities. With 12 million people categorized as food insecure, and under half of the water systems functioning, the need in Syria remains high.

With the nation heading into its twelfth year of civil war, it is critical to keep aid flowing into Syria. Both kits provide families affected by conflict with simple, effective solutions.

GlobalMedic has just sent its 56th sea container full of humanitarian aid including water purification solutions, and medical supplies to Syria to support displaced Syrian families who continue to bear the brunt of the conflict.

All funds raised will continue to go towards distributing Family Emergency Kits and Emergency Food Kits.

Family Emergency Kits provide a family with a water purification solution to ensure they have access to clean drinking water. The kits also include basic hygiene supplies as well as a solar light. Clean drinking water and proper hygiene are the first line of defence against the spread of disease and provide lifesaving assistance.

We have switched up our Emergency Food Kit for Syria, creating a kit full of culturally appropriate pantry stables. The kits include items like rice, green lentils and chickpeas. Families receive the kits and can then prepare the ingredients in the manner they prefer. The food kits are packed by volunteers in Canada and distributed to families along with the Family Emergency Kit.

These two solutions mean a family now has access to clean, water hygiene items and nutritious, locally appropriate and good tasting food.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, vulnerable families including those in Syria continue to be most affected. GlobalMedic has been responding to increased needs caused by the pandemic, supplying Personal Protective Equipment like masks and face shields to help better protect those at risk.
