It is well-known that agriculture activities and animal husbandry are the basic sources of living for people in rural areas where they secure self-sufficiency and help families generate fixed income.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent has launched its livelihood program that aimed at building sustainable livelihoods for the poor and the affected communities.
Enhance an early recovery for affected families
Due to the Syrian crisis, about 200 families had lost their livelihoods in Hatetet Al-Turkman (Rural Damascus), but they managed to regain it once they received the ewes grants and fodders delivered by SARC volunteers with the support of the IFRC.
