Hama - SMART

On Monday, the residents of the city of Hama, Central Syria, complained about the high prices of stationery and other school material. As the new school year begins, the prices of stationery increased by 30 percent compared to last year.

A local source reported that the price of a 70 page notebook increased from 90 to 125 Syrian pounds, and the price of a 200 page notebook increased from 450 to 650 SYP. The price of a packet of pencils increased from 400 to 600 or 700 SYP, and the price of a school uniform reached 20,000 SYP.

Ahmad, an employee in a Syrian government institution, complained about his inability to buy clothes and school material for his three children, since his salary is only 35,000 SYP (70 US dollars) per month.

Ahmad noted that the Syrian government decided to offer residents financial loans dedicated to buy school material; however, the Syrian government demanded the residents to buy the material in institutions belonging to the Syrian government. Ahmad noted that he received a 50,000 SYP loan, but he was surprised when he realized that the prices of materials in the Syrian government's institutions were higher than the prices in markets.

A forcibly displaced person (FDP) from Aleppo said that he was injured and has four children that had to leave school due to high prices of school material and uniforms. The FDP noted that his children left school and chose to work to support their family.

Earlier, the residents of Hama complained about the high prices of clothes and electricity amidst the absence of Syrian government regulations.
