Syriac Cross and Samaritan’s Purse distributed nearly 6,000 food baskets to displaced families from Syria’s Turkish-occupied areas since October

RAQQA and HASAKAH, Syria — As the three-month cooperation contract signed between international non-profit organization Syriac Cross for Relief and Development and Christian non-profit Samaritan’s Purse comes to an end, the organizations reflected on the success of the program.

The cooperation contract, signed in October, included distributing food baskets to the displaced families from Syria’s Turkish-occupied areas.

About 2,000 food baskets were distributed monthly to the internally displaced people (IDPs) in Tal al-Samen Camp in Raqqa city. The food distribution process extended to the communes in several villages of Tel Tamr town and two neighborhoods of Hasakah — Kallasa and Tal Hajar.

The distribution of the third batch of food aid to Tal al-Samen Camp and the displaced families within the communes in Hasakah was recently completed. The distribution process for the displaced families within the villages of Tel Tamr will be completed by the end of 2020.

The Office of Humanitarian Organizations Affairs of the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria facilitated the distribution process by allowing food baskets to be distributed during the coronavirus curfew.
