Milk FOR CHILDREN
The people of Syria have been finding it increasingly hard to provide for their families and children. With many directly affected by the conflict and many internally displaced, means to provide these types of sustenance are now scarce and many children are suffering from malnutrition.
Aid agencies have been distributing food baskets, yet milk which is a vital source of nutrition for children has not been catered for in the food baskets. Milk is a number one need for these families and especially for the children as it contains essential protein, vitamins, and minerals including calcium, fat, and carbohydrates to help build their bodies.
With many families displaced and affected in Syria, there are no means for the breadwinner to provide milk for their children. Global Ehsan Relief together with our partners Human Care Syria plans on distributing 50 tonnes of milk in Idlib, Aleppo, Lattakia, and Homs after an initially small scale distribution. Our fundraising efforts have been via an online campaign, community fundraising events, and partner sponsorships.
