Within a month, it is planned to deliver a humanitarian cargo to the port of Latakia of the Syrian Arab Republic. Subsequently, it will be distributed among the population. The Ministry of Emergency Situations more than 50 times carried out the delivery of humanitarian goods to different countries and has, accordingly, quite a lot of experience. In addition, the humanitarian cargo includes three dump trucks, which will be delivered within a little more than a month. Shipment will be carried out in the near future, directly from the MAZ plant.

The total value of the cargo is about $250,000.

It will be taken to refugee camps, orphanages and hospitals. Belarus supports Syria in the international arena in the fight against terrorism. Syrian children have recently visited Belarus for recuperation on the instruction of the Belarus President. The President instructed to develop a program of recuperation, treatment and study in Belarus.
