A truck filled with mattresses, blankets, and food rations makes its way through agricultural fields, toward a crowd, where Murad holds his daughters’ hands. The 40 year-old farmer’s life has drastically changed and he now relies solely on humanitarian aid. The truck pulls over and his two daughters line up as the distribution starts. Relieved smiles appear on their faces when they are given blankets. “This is going to be very useful,” says Murad. “We fled our city carrying minimal items needed for our household. We really need this kind of assistance.”

Supported by the benefactors of Qatar, Qatar Charity (QC) has allocated additional funds for the Feed a Fasting Projects in Syria at a value of 500,000 QR. They are expected to benefit about 94,000 people from the orphans, displaced and needy families.
With generous support from Islamic Relief partners, Islamic Relief Syria provided food parcels for 155,000 people in Hama, Idlib and Aleppo governorates. We prioritised Aleppo and Idlib because of the large numbers of displaced people, many of whom have been displaced multiple times and as a result, are extremely vulnerable.
The searing hot weather proved a challenge for both the Islamic Relief team and the people receiving the food so we started the distributions very early in the morning and completed them before noon.
