Syrian Red Crescent Delivers UN Humanitarian Aid to Rural Damascus

The Syrian Arab Red Crescent was able to deliver humanitarian assistance provided by the UN to the hard-to-reach towns of Yalda, Babila and Beit Sahem in Rural Damascus.

The delivery consisted of food, nutrition, medical supplies, hygiene kits and other emergency items for 35,000 people in need.

Across Syria, 3.5 million people live in besieged or hard-to-reach areas. Many of them are children. Desperately needed humanitarian assistance isn’t reaching them and families, putting them at risk of disease, hunger, even death.
