Help us Provide Flour-4-Syria

The Flour was sponsored by the Two Lights Foundation, Community Ameerah Project and generous donors from Malawi. Flour4Syria is an ongoing initiative of the Al-Imdaad Foundation that supplies flour to a network of humanitarian bakeries supplying Syrian refugee and IDP communities. The project is donor driven and every rand donated contributes to another mouth being fed. Sponsor a ton of flour today for just R5000 and help ensure the next convoy is able to deliver its load.

Details of our Flour4Syria project

30 Jun 2017

Our Flour4Syria project is going strong for some four years now. In this time millions of Syrians have benefitted from the daily bread made possible by the campaign. Below we provide a brief breakdown about how our distributions work and who benefits. • Each ton of flour is made up of twenty 50kg sacks, which are distributed to bakeries supplying Syrian IDPs in various areas. • From each 50kg sack, a total of 55 Rabtas (bread packs) are produced, each consisting of 8 pita loaves. • This amounts to 440 pita loaves per sack. • Each beneficiary family, on average 6 members, receives two Rabtas (bread packs). • So each 50kg sack will provide for about 27 families or 162 individuals. So by sponsoring one ton of flour for just R5000 you can help provide bread to 3240 people.

Convoy departs for iHH coordination centre in Kilis

Al-Imdaad delegation visits flour milling facility in Adana

01 Dec 2015

On Wednesday, December 2nd 2015, an Al-Imdaad Foundation delegation visited 2 flour milling factories in the Southern Turkish city of Adana that were producing the flour for the upcoming convoy of winter aid that the Al-Imdaad Foundation had sponsored. The facilities were multi-story state of the art operations with specific functions on each floor and an intricate process of milling sifting and sieving to ensure the highest and purest quality four is produced. For the Syrian pita loaf, a slightly coarser flour is preferred so the 250 tons of flour produced for the upcoming convoy had this characteristic.

Convoy of Winter-Aid into Syria

26 Nov 2015

During the winter, the body requires additional energy to generate warmth and maintain optimal body temperature. For this reason the consumption of staples generally rises during the winter season. But with the continued crisis in Syria this necessary increase has become increasingly difficult placing many at peril of insufficient nutrition. The Al-Imdaad Foundation has therefore contributed 250 tons of flour to be baked as pita bread for Syrian refugees and IDPs. The bread will be dispatched as part of an upcoming winter convoy of trucks sent into Syria that will be launched in early December 2015. One ton of flour can produce about 10,000 loaves so an estimated 2, 5 million loaves will be distributed as part of the project.
