Daily Bread Appeal For Syria

During this period of Lent 18th February until 2nd April we are asking if you can help us keep a bakery in Idlib, Syria running and providing bread for 3 villages.

The acute suffering of civilian communities has been made immeasurably worse by a shortage of bread, Syrian’s staple food, caused in part by the deliberate bombing of bakeries. At 'LILY' we are doing our best to try and ease the plight of the Syrian civilian population, who feel abandoned by the rest of the world by making sure that they at least get fresh bread daily.
A family-sized pack of bread containing 8 large pieces, will be sold for approximately 15p per pack to help cover costs. For those who cannot afford this, it will be provided free of charge.The bread will be directly delivered by our team to the Syrian people, which will help to avoid the long queues that may otherwise draw attention from overhead aircraft.
The purchase of flour will constitute the greatest recurring cost associated with running the bakery and we need your support to ensure that we will be able to provide a regular supply of bread, and as the situation worsens and the demand for food grows and we are hope to meet the needs of as many as we can possibly reach with your support.

A donation of:

• £450 (755 USD) will buy an entire day’s supply of flour and provide bread for 3,000 families - in effect, a whole community.
• £150 (250 USD) will buy a tonne of flour and provide bread for 1,000 families.
• £5  (9 USD) will provide a family with bread for a month.
