Tartous, SANA Minister of Social Affairs Kinda al-Shammat called upon the concerned civil associations to distribute humanitarian assistance according to the plan set by Tartous subcommittee of the Higher Committee for Relief.
During a meeting with the subcommittee members, the Minister demanded allocating 50 percent of the associations’ development projects to the rural areas.
She noted that the Ministry would also obligate the local associations working in the relief domain to allocate a permanent 10 percent share of aid to the families of the martyrs and injured personnel of the Syrian Arab Army.
For his part, Tartous Governor Safwan Abu Sa’di announced that the relief subcommittee has established a department of five sections; one of which charged with organizations and civil associations affairs.
This, he noted, would help in following up on these bodies’ work and preventing any aid distribution without the subcommittee’s approval.
