The SRTF Delivers Safety Tools and Equipment to Two of its Projects in the Food Security and Agriculture Sectors

Turkey - Monday, 8 April 2019 – The SRTF Management Unit (MU) delivered quantities of safety tools and equipment to the implementing entities of its: “Re-establishment of Seed Production and Multiplication Programme in Aleppo, Idleb, and Hama Governorates” project and: "Enhancing Food Security of Aleppo and Idleb Governorates" Project. The delivery included vests, safety caps, helmets, safety shoes and cotton masks.


This delivery comes as part of several activities under the two projects which aim to address issues facing the agricultural sector and to protect local wheat and other cereal crops in the targeted areas. The first project directly benefits about 6,750 farmers and their families, and indirectly about 2.5 million people in the targeted areas by enhancing food security and improving living standards. The second project will benefit some 225,000 people, including 20,000 farmers, directly from the 18-month project. The project will indirectly benefit around 2 million people due to stable food prices, low bread prices, enhanced food security at the household level and economic growth.
