Sol.Id Support for Suffering Syrians


Twenty tonnes of necessary aid for the needy in persecuted Syria will be sent from Italy in the latest round of deliveries undertaken by the Italian based charitable association Solidarity-Identity.

Led by Ada Oppedisano , pictured with Syria’s First Lady Asma al-Assad, the association Sol.Id is ready to deliver from its warehouse a total of 520 boxes of non-perishable foodstuffs, medicines and other medical materials, in addition to clothing, blankets and toys.

On top of that there are 36 electronically adjustable hospital beds, more than 150 orthopaedic mattresses, portable beds, wheelchairs, a neonatal incubator, a blood bank refrigerator and photometer for analysing blood plasma, and a photovoltaic system to supply clean water.
