Minister: Higher relief committee keen on cooperation with international organizations
Social Affairs Minister, Dr. Kinda al-Shammat stressed the interest of the Higher Relief Committee in cooperation and coordination with the UN humanitarian relief organizations in Syria through the humanitarian response plan signed between the government and the organizations.
During the Committee meeting on Thursday, al-Shammat, who is the chairwoman of the Committee, pointed to a comprehensive plan for an equitable aid distribution to the affected people in all areas, indicating that ”terrorism lies at the root of the problem”, that is blocking aid transfers to some areas.
