Providing life-saving assistance to internally displaced persons in Syria
Despite the complex humanitarian situation in Syria, ICMC provides humanitarian assistance to internally displaced Syrians in Damascus and the rural areas around the capital.
ICMC’s staff distributes relief items such as blankets, mattresses, and electric heaters to the forcibly displaced. Individuals and families identified by ICMC as vulnerable benefit from baby care kits, house cleaning and personal hygiene kits for adults, as well as disposable incontinence pads for elderly, disabled and ill people. These basic relief commodities help them maintain personal and domestic hygienic living standards in often overcrowded accommodations.
