MOSCOW, April 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society (IOPS) has delivered the 10th consignment of humanitarian aid to the Syrian capital of Damascus, IOPS Deputy Chairman Yelena Agapova said on Monday.
One tonne of baby milk powder has been sent to Damascus. The Patriarchate of Antioch and the Entire East and the Supreme Mufti of Syria will distribute the aid.
In one year, over 80 tonnes of humanitarian aid worth $2 million have been sent to Syria, Agapova told ITAR-TASS.
“One-third of people have become displaced persons inside their own country. Over the years of confrontation 130,000 Syrians, mostly Christians, have been killed. Militants kidnap clergymen and nuns, and destroy sacred places,” she said.
According to earlier reports, on Tuesday, April 22, the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will deliver more than 30 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Syria, mainly warm blankets, foodstuffs and tents.
