UNICEF is ready with vaccines and other medical supplies for children in the besieged Old City of Homs, Syria.
Marixie Mercado, UNICEF Communications spokesperson, said UNICEF had provided a list of supplies to the Government for approval. The list of supplies includes emergency medical kits and cholera kits; soap and hygiene materials; water treatment supplies and oral rehydration salts; winter clothing for infants and polio vaccines.
All of those supplies are available at the UNICEF Homs warehouse, about 10 kilometres away from the Old City, ready to go in as soon as we have the green light, added Ms. Mercado.
