The delivery took place at zero point on the Turkish-Syrian border in coordination with the Turkish authorities.
The delivery included amount of 120.000 sacks to be used by local farmers in Aleppo, Idleb and Hama Governorates for packing, transporting and storing their harvested grains. The delivered quantity is one of several deliveries under this project, which aims to address a series of problems facing the agricultural sector and to protect the local wheat and other grain harvests in the rural areas of the three governorates.
