Description : The president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Peter Maurer is in Syria (January 2014) to assess the humanitarian situation and press for greater humanitarian access.
The president has seen first-hand the harsh living conditions many people in Syria are facing today. In Rural Damascus, thousands have been displaced in recent months due to fighting and now live in extremely precarious conditions. In Sehnaya, a town visited by Mr. Maurer, hundreds of families who fled the violence in nearby Derraya live in six unfinished buildings. Trying to stay warm during the winter months is a struggle despite the support provided from the local branch of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), as there is no fuel, electricity or adequate insulation from the cold.
