Roads of Success Reaches Earthquake Survivors in Syria

Syria, already grappling with the devastating impacts of an ongoing conflict, was struck by a powerful earthquake on the 6th of February 2023. The earthquake left a trail of destruction, displacing thousands of people and exacerbating the already dire humanitarian situation in the country. In response, Roads of Success (ROS) swiftly coordinated efforts to provide aid to the earthquake survivors. This article highlights the vital humanitarian assistance provided, focusing on the distribution of food, mattresses, blankets, and the repair and restoration efforts in affected areas.

Food Distribution

One of the immediate priorities after the earthquake was to ensure that the survivors had access to nutritious food. The ROS initiative aimed to reach as many affected individuals and families as possible, providing them with essential food items, including grains, pulses, canned goods, and clean drinking water. Mobile distribution units and distribution centers were set up in strategic locations to facilitate the process and ensure fair and equitable access to food supplies.

Provision of Mattresses and Blankets

The earthquake also caused extensive damage to homes and infrastructure, leaving many survivors without proper shelter and protection against the elements. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, ROS swiftly organized efforts to provide mattresses and blankets to those in need. These essential relief items helped alleviate the suffering of displaced individuals, providing them with some comfort and warmth in the face of adversity. Distribution centers were established in coordination with local authorities to ensure efficient and equitable distribution of these items to affected communities.


Repair and Restoration Efforts

The earthquake inflicted significant damage to buildings, roads, and vital infrastructure, further complicating the recovery process in Syria. ROS, in collaboration with local authorities and construction experts, initiated repair and restoration efforts to help rebuild affected areas. These initiatives involved assessing the damage, coordinating debris removal, and providing materials and expertise for reconstruction. The aim was not only to restore physical structures but also to create sustainable and resilient communities that could withstand future disasters.


The humanitarian response to the earthquake in Syria demonstrated the international community’s commitment to alleviating the suffering of the affected population. Through the distribution of food, mattresses, blankets, and the implementation of repair and restoration initiatives, ROS with local authorities worked together to address the immediate needs of earthquake survivors. However, the recovery process in Syria remains a long-term endeavour, requiring sustained support to rebuild infrastructure, ensure food security, and restore normalcy to the lives of those affected by the disaster.
