the extreme winter conditions in Syria are putting most families under unbearable situations, resulting from the deterioration of the economy, lack of fuel and power, and prices skyrocketing. The Syrian Arab Red Crescent continues doing its best to help people withstand the harsh weather through distributing warm clothes and some basic commodities to the most vulnerable families in Raqqa, Hama and Tartous cities.
As the temperatures go below zero in Raqqa, the SARC volunteers distributed 2000 winter clothes kits to families headed by women in Sabkhah and Ma’adan villages. The kit contains warm clothes for children (6- 16 y), with the support of the ICRC.
In Al-Moufaker village, far east of Hama, where frosts prevail in winter, the SARC volunteers distributed warm clothes kits (for adults and children), and plastic sheets, supported by the UNHCR.
Before the beginning of 2023, the volunteers distributed relief aid to 123 families in Qadmous, Rural Tartous. The aid consisted of blankets, clothes for all groups, mats and plastic sheets.
