How We Help
Food is one of the most basic necessities of life and SRD has long-provided food security projects to help alleviate the need for access to nutritious food for Syrian and Syrian refugee families. But there are other essential needs that food distributions alone cannot tackle and that’s where our Non-Food Items (NFIs) distributions come in. One of the greatest needs we have assessed is the need for seasonal care during the winter months. Syrian children quickly outgrow their winter clothing from year-to-year and families are often in need of blankets, mattresses, rugs and heating fuel or a heating furnace to keep warm. Providing this seasonal warmth goes a long way in helping ensure children, the elderly and other populations vulnerable to the cold will have a better chance at survival.
