CARE was mentioned in this Associated Press story about aid reaching Madaya, a besieged community in Syria, as an international aid organization that “welcomed the aid convoy but also warned that a one-time delivery won't save starving people.”  CARE was among eight aid organizations that released a statement expressing relief that a convoy of food aid and other first-need items was finally allowed into Madaya and other beseiged areas.  "Only a complete end to the 6-month-old siege and guarantees for sustained aid deliveries alongside humanitarian services will alleviate the crisis in these areas," the statement said.
