The distribution, which is being carried out by ERC volunteers during the month of August, is meant to alleviate the consequences the events in North Sinai have had on residents.

This is the sixth time the ERC and the ICRC have responded to the humanitarian needs of North Sinai residents. In February 2021, 402 tons of food aid, 22 tons of hygiene kits, and floor mats were distributed to 6,000 households in the governorate.

This comes as part of ICRC and ERC’s fruitful partnership, which has enabled the two organizations to support 36,000 families (180,000 individuals) in North Sinai with food parcels and hygiene kits over the past five years.

Both the ERC and the ICRC are part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. They work in close cooperation to provide humanitarian support and to reunite families, re-establishing contact between family members who have been separated as a result of conflict and other violence in the region. The work of both humanitarian organizations is guided by the principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, and independence that guide the Movement.

Besides the assistance, the ICRC is planning to implement a livelihood program in North Sinai that targets the most vulnerable families, aiming to improve their income with sustainable work by supporting and establishing small projects.
