The following foodstuffs were distributed to nearly 15,000 refugees over the course of three months:
30,000 tea bags – With an average weight of 0.75 g per tea bag, this adds up to 52,5kg that were used to brew tea. In addition, 20,000 bottles of mineral water and 1,000 litres of milk were distributed.
1,500 kg of bread – Bread ranked first among basic foodstuffs, followed by 600 kg of cheese, 200 kg of cucumbers and 200 kg of tomatoes.
375 kg of cereal bars and chocolate – Sugar and food containing sugar were much sought after, probably because they quickly provide energy. In addition to the 15,000 cereal and chocolate bars, 1,500 kg of bananas were distributed, which corresponds to around 13,500 individual bananas, and 1,000 kg of sugar was consumed.
