On September 19th, there was a deadly attack on a convoy bringing humanitarian aid to the city of Aleppo. The Canadian Red Cross joins the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement in condemning this attack.

Around 20 civilians and one Syrian Arab Red Crescent staff member were killed as they were unloading trucks carrying vital humanitarian aid. Much of the aid was destroyed. This attack deprives thousands of civilians of much-needed food and medical assistance.

In photos, we take a look at the dedicated work of Red Crescent volunteers in a time of turmoil. Aleppo and its surrounding area has seen conflict in the area for the past five years and volunteers have provided psycho-social support, health and food parcels, water maintenance and much more throughout this time.

The Red Cross and Red Crescent is calling for safe, unrestricted access to vulnerable people in Syria.
