For more than 10 years and due to the difficult conditions of the war in Syria, the economic and living situations are deteriorated and the Syrian families are still suffering because of the high prices of goods, lack of income and job opportunities and loss of property, in addition to the collapse of the value of the Syrian currency against USD. All of that, increase the poverty, a weakening of the living conditions of the population, and losing all services in all sectors, and depriving people from the most basic necessities of life.
Based on the humanitarian duty, the Establishment for Human Care and Development – MASRRAT implements emergency response projects and campaigns for the residents and the displaced people (IDPs) who affected by the war. The projects include many different activities such as: distributing food baskets, distributing cash vouchers, Ramadan meals and distributing free bread and other essential items
Northwest Syria is a densely populated area with residents, internally displaced people, and returnees. Approximately, 186,458 families have been displaced to the northwest areas of Syria since December -2019, and 80% of them are children and women. Most of the IDP families moved to the sub-regions in Idlib and Aleppo such as Al-Dana, Azaz, Ma’aret Tamsrin, Taftanaz, Afrin, Salqin. The presence of this huge number of people within these areas led to a lack of job opportunities, an increase in the level of unemployment, and difficulty in obtaining daily basic necessities such as bread. Moreover, the value of the Syrian currency against the USD is significantly collapsed in light of the imposition of economic sanctions, as the average daily income for a worker is 2.5 dollars, equivalent to 5000 Syrian pounds, and the price of bread has reached 800 Syrian pounds, where a family of five people needs two bundles of bread per day, i.e. 1600 Syrian pounds. Only in order to secure bread, which is one of the most important priorities for a living.
