Logistics Cluster airlifts from Damascus to Qamishly

01 April 2014

In order to reach Al-Hassekeh Governorate (inaccessible by road from Damascus), the Logistics Cluster organized nine emergency airlifts from Damascus to Qamishly from 12 to 22 March. The Cluster dedicated the Sahnaya warehouse in Rural Damascus as a staging area, and all participants pre-positioned their cargo in this common warehousing facility for the airlifts. In order to provide critical aid to the isolated population in this area, a total of over 1,000 m³ of urgent relief cargo was airlifted on behalf of GOPA, IMC, IOM, UNICEF, WFP, and WHO. The relief cargo transported includes WASH, shelter, food, protection, and health items.
