The citizens of Syria, affected by the catastrophic earthquakes, received 105 tons of humanitarian aid from Serbia, with a total value of approximately one million euros, the Government of Serbia announced.

This aid contingent, the second in order, consists of medicines, medical equipment and sanitary materials in the value of 71,904,428 dinars, followed by food in the value of 20,916,687 dinars, tents, aggregates, blankets, hygiene products, as well as other necessities necessary for citizens Syria.

The Government of Serbia provided this assistance in cooperation with the Republic Directorate for Commodity Reserves, the RFZO, the Department for Emergency Situations of the MUP, the Serbian Red Cross, the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration, as well as domestic companies.

The dispatch of the aid, which was sent to the citizens of Syria, was attended by the Minister of Internal Affairs, Bratislav Gašić, and the Ambassador of Syria to Serbia, Bassem Dzaman Agha.

On that occasion, Gašić pointed out that the Government had already approved aid in the amount of one million euros, which was paid to Syria, and added that that was not all.

According to his words, at this moment in the warehouses for the reception of humanitarian aid provided by the Government, but also citizens and domestic companies, there are still approximately 100 tons of aid left, which will be shipped to Syria by road and sea transport.

The minister pointed out that ten days ago, the first contingent of aid was sent by “Air Serbia” special flight in the form of seven tons of goods, food products, as well as powdered milk, which was a donation from the Republic’s commodity reserves.

The Government of Serbia, as he noted, has provided a similar aid package to Turkey, most of which has already been dispatched through the daily cooperation of the Operational Team, the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey and Turkish Airlines.

The Ambassador of Syria expressed his gratitude to the Government of Serbia and Minister Gašić, who made it possible to send the shipment to the vulnerable population in his country.

“This shipment is the result of good cooperation between the Serbian government and the Syrian embassy,” pointed out Dzaman Aga, explaining that it will mean both in the medical sense and for the care of people who are now homeless.
