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