The SRTF Delivers Polypropylene Flour Sacks for a Food Security Project in Aleppo and Idleb Governorates

Turkey – Tuesday, 30 May 2017 - The SRTF Management Unit delivered a large quantity of Polypropylene flour sacks to the Implementing Entity (IE) 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 500.000 of polypropylene flour sacks. This project aims to address the current food insecurity crisis in Aleppo and Idleb Governorates. It will also help the project’s IE, the Syrian Public Establishment for Grains (SPEG), in packing, transporting and storing flour.

 

Overall, the project aims to ensure the availability of bread at affordable prices for the local population in moderate opposition held areas. It will prevent any attempts to withhold in storage any wheat flour required by the bakeries to secure bread production and availability.
