Syriac Cross continues to provide emergency aid to refugee and IDP-families, as well as local families in need. Since the breakout of the Syrian war the living standard in Syria has become very high and thus a challenge to survive. Especially governorates, such as Al-Hassaka governorates, with a high influx of IDPs are affected. Therefore, Syriac Cross focuses on distribution of different kind of supplies to the people in need.
From July to September 2018 Syriac Cross was able to distribute 401 food parcels and 401 hygiene kits; more than 3.900 people benefited from this project.
While implementig emergency aid projects, Syriac Cross carries out the distribution without distinction between religion and ethnicity.
This projects has been donated by Caritas Slovakia. Already in June Syriac Cross was able to implement a similar project with the support of Caritas Slovakia.
