In Turkey, vulnerable Syrians receive 87 Turkish Lira (about 21 EUR) (105 Turkish Lira in the second cycle) [about 25 EUR] each month with which they can purchase food and other basic items in designated markets. During the last winter, they received additional support in the form of an extra loading on the cash cards to be able to purchase winter items such as blankets, additional bedding or stoves. Through its partners in Syria, Welthungerhilfe (WHH) supports bakeries and bread distributions reaching 31.000 families. In Aleppo and Idlib governorate 5.000 families receive food vouchers.
