Clean Drinking Water for Displaced Syrian Families
By Tara Kranics - Emergency Programs Officer
An example of a Family Emergency Kit
As we enter the ninth year of the war in Syria, civilians continue to bear the brunt of the conflict. Due to the fighting, over 13.1 million Syrians are in need. GlobalMedic has just sent its 18th sea container full of humanitarian aid including water purification solutions, emergency food, 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 that will provide a family with 2,400 litres of clean drinking water and basic hygiene supplies. Clean drinking water and proper hygiene are the first line of defence against the spread of disease, and provide life saving assistance.
The Family Emergency Kits have also been augmented with our new Emergency Food kits specifically designed by Syrians, for Syrians. Each kit contains 6 meals of a dish called Mujadarra, a local meal containing bulgur, lentils and fried onions. These kits deliver a calorically dense meal, while maintaining the dignity of the beneficiary by providing a culturally appropriate solution. The food kits are packed by volunteers in Canada and distributed to families along with the Family Emergency Kit.
These 2 solutions mean a family now has access to clean water, hygiene items and nutritious, locally appropriate and good-tasting food.
