Water Survival Box aid is being sent to:  Syria


To maximise its effectiveness Water Survival Box aid is airlifted to its destination. But due to Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions placed upon the international transporting of freight, on this occasion we teamed up with Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire. With their assistance our boxes on this rare occasion were sent in containers by sea.



Type of disaster: CONFLICT



While levels of violence have reduced significantly, over 11 million people in Syria still require humanitarian aid. 10 years of war beset by violations, including crimes against humanity, has destroyed the country’s infrastructure, with homes and schools destroyed, lack of clean water and sanitation, is a significant factor effecting the population.





Friday the 16th of April - Due to logistical considerations our consignment of 200 WSB aid has been split in two. 100 boxes leaving Parker Transport in Radstock on Friday the 16th and the second 100 will leave on Monday the 19th. These 200 boxes will as the first part of their journey be transported to Birmingham, England. Then with the help of our partners on this project (Hand in Hand for Syria)  be sent by sea freight from the UK on the first available ship.  Date of arrival at the warehouses of “Hand in Hand for Syria” will depend on departure date from the UK. Follow this page for updates as they become available.
