Description : During the night of 3 February 2016, as darkness fell, the ICRC and Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) crossed the checkpoints and the buffer zone to enter the besieged town of Moaadamiyeh to give aid to tens of thousands of people in desperate need.
Thousands of people had waited for hours on the edge of the buffer-zone separating warring parties before the deliveries could start. The 12 truck convoy carried food and hygiene items sufficient for more than 12,000 people for three weeks and medical supplies to local health facilities sufficient for 10,000 patients for three months.
Marianne Gasser, head of ICRC delegation, Syria stated: “We delivered aid: food parcels, hygiene kits and medical supplies to families in Moaddamiyeh and medical supplies to the health facility in Moaddamiyeh. We also could speak to the civilian population - a lot of women, a lot of children. They desperately need additional supplies and we have already loaded food parcels and hygiene kits to bring in tomorrow morning.”
Gasser emphasised: “It is very important that we come back, that we deliver aid on a regular basis.”
The needs of an estimated 50,000 people in Moadamiyeh are far greater than what the ICRC and SARC were allowed to deliver. “I spoke to several women who were with their children,” said Gasser. “What they asked for most is baby milk for their babies and they are lacking also bread and food.”
