HOW CAN A HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATION LIKE KARAM BREAK THIS SIEGE WHEN NO SUPPLIES CAN PASS THE CHECKPOINTS? BY LISTENING TO THE LOCALS AND INVESTING IN THEIR INNOVATIVE INITIATIVE.
Karam Foundation is collaborating with the Directorate of Health in Rural Damascus and the Provincial Council on an amazing response to save the children. We are MAKING the children’s food locally — using milk formula, wheat, oil and sugar — in a former pharmaceutical factory.
For the past 6 years, the ingenious Syrian people have displayed limitless resilience and creativity in the face of the most dire circumstances. This is one of these awe-inspiring projects.
Over a period of 3 months, we will provide and distribute 36,000 life-saving meal packages to over 6,000 of the most vulnerable children per month in Eastern Ghouta. Our on-the-ground partner team of humanitarians, nurses, and doctors will identify the most at-risk children, and prepare and distribute the meal packages.
Together, we will refuse to watch innocent children starve to death. Together, we will declare to the world that we refuse to be bystanders to genocide
