September 2022 Project Update

By Jamie Cross | Senior Emergency Programs Manager

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.

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.

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. 

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