SCM was able to send an initial disbursement of money to our office in Jordan to purchase food, blankets, and hygiene items that will be sent with the Jordan Hashemite Charities Organization by air to Aleppo right away.
Our director there, Basel Sawalha, is buying these items now and coordinating with the JHCO to deliver them to their plane for transport. These items will be distributed by the UN in and around Aleppo later tomorrow.
Your cash donations are so important to keep this effort going! In times like this, people need help now, not in months, waiting for a container of donations to arrive. We will continue to buy supplies in Jordan and Turkey and join with other organizations on the ground to get them distributed.
Our longstanding relationship with the JHCO helps us get aid to places we wouldn’t be able to otherwise. We partnered with them to get much needed aid from our warehouse in Madaba, Jordan to Beirut after the terrible explosion at the port there in 2020.
Please help us get more aid by donating today so supplies can be purchased right away in Jordan and sent to Aleppo. https://www.scmmedicalmissions.org/donations/earthquake-aid/
