Food Basket Projects
Food sustains life and it can easily be taken for granted how blessed we are to have daily hot meals while Syrian refugees struggle to survive. The destitute victims of the Syrian conflict have been forced to flee their homes with nothing more than the clothes on their backs and lack the resources to buy, harvest, and in some cases even prepare the most basic of food. What’s worse is that 5.6 million of these refugees are in difficult-to-reach and besieged areas, making it exceptionally challenging for humanitarian aid to reach them.
The Syrian Orphans Organization is in a unique position to reach these difficult-to-reach areas. Our well-connected network of volunteers on the ground ensures that food reaches areas other organizations have difficulty reaching. Without food, even the most resilient of women, children, and elderly cannot survive. It is our moral duty to do everything in our power to reach these people and provide them with sustenance.
Our Food Program consists of two key services: (1) providing food baskets to families in besieged and difficult-to-reach areas, and (2) providing hot meals cooked by our volunteers to people in areas with no resources to cook food. About 75% of our aid is in the form of food baskets delivered to families that lack resources but can prepare their own meals with our support. About 25% of our aid is in the form of soup kitchens that provide hot meals in areas where families lack not only the resources to prepare their own meals but also the means to do so. The victims in these areas are so destitute that they cannot cook and prepare their own food even if they were provided with a food basket. Both of these programs combine to ensure that various besieged and difficult-to-reach areas are provided food aid that is tailored to their unique circumstances.
We still have a lot of work to do need your support to grow these initiatives. Programs like these are not possible without your generous donations and even a few dollars can make a world of difference. Please make a donation online now. A few minutes of your time can literally save a life.
