Over 20 children will be able to get lifesaving aid thanks to these medicines," Avilova said, specifying that the medicines aimed for cancer treatment were included in the cargo.

"Part of our cargo, including nutrition, milk for artificially-fed children, was intended for families of doctors with infants, to support them," Avilova added, speaking about the cargo delivered to Latakia.
Avilova noted that Syria’s Homs also asked for humanitarian aid and the charity would like to meet the request, however, the fulfillment depended on the organization’s partners and sponsors.

Syria has been in a grip of civil war for six years, with government forces fighting against both Syrian opposition groups who strive to overthrow President Bashar Assad, and numerous extremist and terrorist groups such as Daesh and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, both of which are outlawed in Russia. Russia and Turkey are the guarantors of a nationwide Syrian ceasefire regime that came into force on December 30, 2016.
