Food Security and Livelihood

As the conflict in Syria continues families are increasingly struggling to access sufficient food. The loss of families’ assets, displacement, the inability to make a living, the destruction of the agricultural sector and rising costs all mean that even where food is available people often cannot afford it.

Save the Children and our partners have been working in 35 locations in Syria providing more than 171,000 people with regular food parcels. Save the Children is also providing emergency livelihoods support through agricultural and livestock inputs, small business support, and rehabilitation of vital community assets through cash transfer programs enabling vulnerable families to meet their basic needs.
