This week, a group of young men from the “New Generation" cultural association in the city of Aleppo launched a campaign to distribute food supplies to residents of the city's neighborhoods.
"The initiative is the first of its kind under the conditions of which the country is experiencing to coronavirus," Hovik Inserlyan, general manager of New Generation association, told North-Press.
He explained that "the first and last goal of this initiative is to urge the people to stay at their homes, for fear of the spread of coronavirus epidemic among the city's residents."
The initiative includes seven groups, each group consisting of 9 people wandering in the neighborhoods of al-Midan, al-Aziziya, Sulaimaniya, and Jaberiya, to target 200 families, to which food baskets and detergents are distributed and are assisted to secure basic food items such as bread and vegetables.
The daily plan of the initiative team begins with knowing the needs of a number of homes which are classified in the daily list by calling them and asking the residents about their needs. This is followed by a distribution plan where the baskets are delivered to houses, according to members of the initiative team.
The initiative will continue until next week, and it is likely that the number of the beneficiary and targeted families in the campaign will be expanded, in addition to increasing the value of the basket that is provided to the people, according to the general manager of the association.
