Turkey – Saturday, 29 April 2017 – The SRTF Management Unit delivered a large quantity of hessian sacks to the implementing entity of its “Enhancing Food Security of Aleppo and Idleb Governorates” project today. The delivery took place today at a zero point on the Turkish-Syrian border in coordination with the Turkish authorities. The delivery included amount of 336.000 sacks to be used by local farmers for packing, transporting and storing their harvested grains.

The project aims to protect the local wheat and other grain harvests in the rural areas of the two governorates. The soft Syrian wheat produced locally is essential for mixing with imported hard wheat to produce the traditional Syrian bread.

The project also ensures continuing supplies of flour for local bakeries in moderate opposition held areas to the benefit of some about 2 million consumers in the two governorates.
