Food Insecurity in Syria
Over a decade of war has pushed 12 million Syrians into food insecurity. More than a million Syrians are severely food insecure or unable to survive without food humanitarian aid. No one should be starving. No parent should have to make the decision of which of their children can eat today and which of them have to go to bed hungry.
Fighting hunger and malnutrition is a top priority for Syria Relief’s emergency team. Malnutrition not only damages health but it stops children from learning to their full potential and it stops adults from working to enough money. This then creates a cycle of poverty.
Every single month, Syria Relief provides families with locally sourced food parcels containing a selection of the key ingredients needed to prepare balanced meals, enough to feed a family of five for a month. Your donations for Syria Relief’s food parcel can be the difference between life and death when an area is under siege and there are restrictions on food and basic goods being able to reach the population through markets.
