In December 2016 COOPI opened an office in Damascus and in February 2017 our first project approved by AICS started, called the “Emergency initiative in Syria for the improvement of food safety and sanitary conditions”. Here, kits to create vegetable gardens and chicken coops for 657 vulnerable families are distributed, directed by women and residents from the south-western outskirts of the city of Damascus and the villages of the sub-district of Qatana. Our actions aim to promote food self-sufficiency to families; to reduce the risk of physical and sexual exploitation and abuses against women, providing appropriate psychosocial support.
