Description : The frequent fighting and constant insecurity in Aleppo have affected all aspects of daily life in the city, as is the case in many other conflict-affected areas of Syria.
There are tens of thousands of displaced and vulnerable people in the governorate with no income and no savings who depend on assistance to survive. The challenges facing the humanitarian work in Aleppo are huge.
The ICRC is working closely with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent to respond to these daily challenges. Last week, the head of the ICRC's delegation in Syria, Marianne Gasser, visited Aleppo to gain a fresh insight into the situation.
Together with the ICRC Aleppo team and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) Aleppo branch, she visited different areas of the city and spoke with people suffering the effects of the ongoing violence. Constructive meetings with local authorities were also held to facilitate and ensure the safe delivery of humanitarian aid.
Today, in Aleppo city, there is often as little as one hour of electricity per day. Keeping vital water supplies running and ensuring electricity for hospital services is vital. To this end, the ICRC has provided generators for use in different locations, including hospitals. Last Thursday, 5th March, in an emergency following the breakdown of a hospital generator in the eastern part of the city, the ICRC was able to replace it with another one through the efforts of SARC volunteers and hospital engineers.
SARC distributes aid at three different locations in Aleppo. A visit was made to one of them on the 3rd March where some 12,000 families are registered to receive food parcels.
