UN Convoy Crosses Conflict Line to Reach Vulnerable Children and Families With Emergency Supplies

Date Published: 
01/03/2014
Summary: 

Food is available, but prices have risen dramatically, putting some ordinary items out of the reach of families already struggling to get by. Six UN agencies - Unicef, WFP, UNHCR, IOM, OCHA, and UNDSS - contributed to the convoy which consisted of 10 trucks laden with supplies. Among these were two truck-loads of UNICEF supplies, including soap, washing powder, and family water kits.
