With 13.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance (As of October 2015 reliefwenb.int/OCHA), Human Care Syria has established two bakeries in the suburbs of Aleppo and Idlib supporting 3,000 families daily who have lost their breadwinner.
The establishment of the "Care Bakeries" in the suburbs of Aleppo (Northern Syria) has had a positive impact on the already very poor suburbs – not only is the bakery providing families with bread packs it is also providing a livelihood for the local community.
In Syria, bread or "Khobez" as it is known is part of the staple diet that millions of Syrians rely on every day.
However, as a result of the current crisis thousands of people do not have the means to purchase their daily requirement of bread and to make matters worse many bakeries have been destroyed as a result of the ongoing conflict
Your support of ONLY £1.50 A DAY can help to restore an element of normality to their lives despite the ongoing crisis.
Human Care Syria is looking to establish a third bakery in the northern region of Syria supporting a vast number of families as well as providing a job for 20 staff from the Syrian IDP community.
We also sponsored a bakery for two months with 100 tonnes of flour. This in turn made 60,000 bread packs that weigh approximately 1 kg each. These bread packs last a family of five for two days. 25,000 families were supported throughout the duration of the project.
