"Syrians without an Address" Campaign: Fruit of MBC Hope and WFP Joint Efforts to Aid Syrian Refugees

Dubai, 3 July 2014: MBC Hope, the Corporate Social Responsibility division of MBC Group, in collaboration with the World Food Program, WFP, launches its "Syrians without an Address" campaign, in the hopes of providing food aid to millions of Syrian citizens adversely affected and/ or displaced by the current Syrian crisis, whether inside Syria or as refugees to neighboring countries.

"Syrians without an Address" aims to shed a light on the humanitarian sufferings and hardships suffered by Syrians in localities they have migrated to as well as refugee camps which house them now. The campaign also attempts to showcase the monumental efforts of aid workers operating at ground zero with the World Food Program along with their Arab counterparts in their ongoing battle to deliver aid and supplies to these refugees and easing even some of the hardships they face.

Out of this need, throughout the blessed month of Ramadan, MBC will screen across its channels and interactive platforms, 30 short documentaries detailing the hardships faced by 30 individual humanitarian cases, in order to open the discourse and channels to aid and assist fellow Syrians amongst our generous public.

"Syrians without an Address" is supported by the participation of many Arab celebrities who are conscious of playing a positive role with their contributions to society, striving to expose some of the suffering witnessed by those who have been forced to leave their homes under extreme and extenuating circumstances to survive in immigrant areas and refugee camps.

It is worth noting that the World Food Program is currently providing aid to around 5.5 million Syrians, out of which 1.5 million are immigrants to neighboring countries; through food aid distributed via electronic-chip cards in addition to other amenities. These cards allow for those in need of aid and those benefitting from it to purchase the food products they need and choose, while at the same time supporting the local economies of the host countries.
