Syria: Expanding our humanitarian action

19 September 2014

The ICRC is working closely with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent to distribute food and other aid across Syria. We do so strictly on the basis of need, regardless of the political, ethnic or religious affiliations of the people concerned. We regularly distribute aid across front lines, with the approval of all parties. In the first eight months of 2014, 3.5 million people received emergency food rations from the ICRC – the same number as in all of 2013.
