JEDDAH: King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief) is providing help to the needy families in Syria engaged in the agriculture and livestock sectors.

The KSRelief is supporting agricultural activities in Aleppo, Homs and Hama. 

The center also provided support for livestock activities in Aleppo and Daraa, targeting needy residents and displaced families engaged in livestock farming. This included providing these families with sheep, cows, feed, veterinary care and vaccines in addition to conducting training courses taught by livestock specialists.

The center’s agricultural support in Aleppo, Atarib, Hama, Qalaat Al-Madiq, Homs, Al-Rastan, Talbisa, Gharnata, and Zafarana included the distribution of 9,917 agricultural baskets that contain vegetable seeds, compound fertilizers, pesticides, and 60-liter fuel vouchers to be used in supplemental irrigation.

Livestock activities are supported through the distribution of 4,020 lambs to 2,101 families in Azaz and Daraa. The KSRelief also provided 100 Syrian families with cows in Azaz and Daraa, and these cows will be provided with the necessary medicines, vaccines, and full veterinary supervision provided the project’s directors oversee them for 6 months during which milk is distributed to 100 displaced families in the targeted areas.
