Red Cross / Red Crescent food parcels arrive in Homs, Syria

Homs, Al-Ghuta neighborhood. Local people help Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers unload food parcels from a truck into a warehouse.


A four-trucks Syrian Arab Red Crescent and ICRC convoy, the second in four days, has carried 2,000 food parcels (complementary food for 12,000 people) and 2,000 blankets to Homs for the inhabitants of the city affected by violence.


The assistance was, at first, stock in a donated warehouse in Al-Ghuta neighborhood, where the main Syrian Arab Red crescent office is located in Homs.


On the same day, Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers began distributing the assistance to Homs inhabitants through four distribution points, later expanded to nine points in various areas of the city.
