    BUKAIN (Syria) (Sputnik) - The Russian Center for Reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria has delivered several tonnes of humanitarian aid, mainly food, to the village of Bukain in Syria's western province of Rif Dimashq, a Sputnik correspondent reported Monday.

    The settlement has been under control of outlawed armed groups. When the militants retreated, they destroyed schools, hospitals and the water supply. The main part of the infrastructure has already been restored, but people are still in need of aid.

    The food was distributed near a recently repaired school and a total of 800 children received aid packages. The servicemen have also opened a mobile medical unit and carried out vaccination of the pupils.
