With the violent civil war in Syria, four million people (half of whom are children) are suffering dire consequences of the conflict day-to-day without basic food necessities. Food sources, like crops and cattle, have been destroyed by the war leaving pregnant mothers and children at risk of malnutrition. Since the war has started in 2011, there has been a 60 percent decrease in the production of basic cooking ingredients and supplies.

(COHI), a US-based non-profit that helps mothers and children in locations that are in times of crisis, has teamed up with Watan, a Syria-based organization, to raise funds and provide food to families in Syria.
