Food Baskets for More than 230,000 in Syria
Mercy-USA has been distributing vital monthly food baskets in Northern Syria for more than 6 years. We began our food distribution in Aleppo, serving the needs of poor families left behind in the city. In the last weeks before the fall of Aleppo, Mercy-USA was the only organization with food stocks left to distribute. We followed the evacuees out to the surrounding countryside and have expanded our reach to tens of thousands as the need for food has only increased.
Because of our consistent and effective implementation of large food basket distributions over these years, we’re pleased to announce our numbers of families served with nutritious food has now been increased exponentially. Through generous grants and in partnership with the World Food Program, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and the International Organization for Migration, we have been able to scale up this project and serve more than 230,000 people in northern Syria with food baskets. Many families have told us that our food baskets are all that they have to survive each month.
A donation of $110 will feed an entire family for a month in Syria.
