Syria Relief is providing 150-300 hot meals per week for outreach services across Tameside and Manchester for the homeless. Over 30,000 meals have been prepared, cooked and delivered. This project also builds local food security capacity by training around 100 volunteer community cooks weekly.
We also provide ‘basic essentials’ support for the vulnerable, elderly and refugees in the UK including medical aid. Recently, our efforts included facilitation of new clothes for Afghan refugees with the help of the UK Home Office. We are also working with local clusters on both the COVID-19 Response and the Afghan refugee crisis. We want to ensure that Syria Relief is recognised as a key player in any local response that is benefitting our community.
