Syria 02.10.2020

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is bringing relief to those in need who face difficulty in accessing bread through its bakeries established in Hatay, Kilis and other regions in Syria.

IHH Syrian Operations Media Representative Selim Tosun said bread in Syria is a vital part of life. Tosun added that the bread is produced with the flour supplied through the support of donors.

“There are more than 8 million people living on the threshold of starvation in Syria. These people who are suffering from war are finding it difficult even to access bread, one of the basic sources of nutrition. Everyday we are sending an average of 500 thousand loaves of Syrian bread baked in IHH bakeries to families in the refugee camps and six days a week to the central settlement are. In the first 9 months of this year, we have distributed 112 million loaves of bread to the various regions of Syria.”


“We are fulfilling an important need of the families who are victims of war living in the region. This bread that we distribute for free is produced according to the bread the people here are accustomed to and is packaged in a way so it will stay fresh for three days.”


IHH has been carrying out humanitarian aid operations including bread production and distribution in the region since the domestic war in Syria began in 2011.
