The average family in Syria has been displaced more than three times, living constantly on guard, fearing that conflict could force them to flee again.
Amid years of violence and uncertainty, emergency food can be a lifeline. “We’re helping those who are in dire need to survive,” says Rev. Riad Jarjour, president of Forum for Development, Culture and Dialogue, the MCC partner implementing the food box project. “You can’t imagine the number of people who ask us to thank you.”
The food box contains staples like rice, pasta, lentils, chickpeas, canned meat and oil.
