Damascus Countryside - SMART

The people of Eastern Al-Ghouta, Southern Syria complained about the difficulty of getting bread due to the lack of flour provided by the Damascus Governorate Council, in addition to the overcrowding of bakeries and high price of bread

On Tuesday, a bakery vendor from Zamalka, Abu Akram, told SMART that the Damascus Countryside Governorate Council provides about 30 thousand kilos of flour daily. This amount is not enough for one third of the people. However, Al-Ghouta needs more than 50 thousand kilos of flour.

A resident of Zamalka, Abu Hassan told SMART that he recently relied on preparing bread at home because he cannot buy bread from the bakeries. His family needs two bread bags daily, which cost more than 1500 pounds.

A resident of Ein Tarma, Abu Al-Nour, told SMART that he hasn't had bread for several days due to overcrowding of the bakery, so he depends on food that does not require bread.

A resident of the town of Haza, Abu al-Khair also told SMART that he does not get bread due to overcrowding. If the bread isn't available in the bakeries, he sends flour to a shop to bake bread in exchange for 300 Syrian pounds per kilo.

Two days ago, about 100 people demonstrated in the city of Douma, which is 10 km east of Damascus, because the bakeries don't sell them bread.

The Damascus Countryside Governorate distributed bread to local councils in the towns and cities of Eastern Al-Ghouta to limit the price of bread. The price of bread decreased to 700 Syrian pounds after it was previously 1400.
