Emergency Response For Distribution Hygiene Kits

Silk Road Organization has launched a new project under the name of emergency response, with the aim of distributing a number of hygiene kits to returning families and IDP’s in the towns of Qabasin and Bazagha in the countryside of eastern Aleppo.

The emergency response project in these two towns aims to increase access to hygiene kits and to contribute to reduce the risks of drinking-related diseases. The project carried out by the Silk Road Organization was in two stages to distribute 4 thousand basket of hygiene kits to 4 thousand families. The first phase started in Qabasin followed by the second phase in the town of Bazagha in the eastern Aleppo countryside.

Within the project's activities, Silk Road Organization launched a campaign to promote hygiene for both women and children, which included awareness sessions on healthy hygiene practices, proper use of the materials contained in the distributed kits as well as distribution of catalogs and advice on health and hygiene for women and children. This campaign has improved the knowledge of women, girls and boys about healthy practices.
