In Ramadan 2020, Indonesian benefactors provided food packages for Syrian internally displaced people (IDP) in Idlib. Thousands of food packages containing flour, cooking oil, nuts, and several other types of foodstuffs were delivered by Aksi Cepat Tanggap.

Firdaus Guritno from Global Humanity Response-Aksi Cepat Tanggap explained that the assistance consisted of not only staple food packages but also iftar and suhoor meals. Near Eid Al-Fitr, Eid gifts were given to the children. New clothes from the generous benefactors brightened the smiles of the Syrian children on the festive occasion of Eid.

"Approximately 1,800 IDP located in Arsal and Idlib received Eid packages in Ramadan last year. "Hopefully, this year, our generous friends will once again assist Syrian IDP in Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr. We aim to benefit more than 20,000 people," said Firdaus. []
