The humanitarian needs inside Syria have reached unprecedented levels and continue to increase, with millions displaced inside the country in search of safety. Many of them are dependent on humanitarian aid. Almost two million people are receiving aid every month from the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) in collaboration with local NGOs, and supported by the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement.
All over the country, about 3,000 SARC volunteers continue to provide essential assistance. By the end of March 2013, SARC has been supported by the IFRC with food and non-food items for more than 470,000 persons, including 46,000 tarpaulins, 230,940 blankets and 123,800 mattresses. Since the beginning of the year a total of 52 trucks dispatched by IFRC’s global logistics services with relief items.
The Irish Red Cross Syria Crisis Appeal continues to suport those in need both in Syria and those who have been forced to flee across borders.
