1.8 Million Syrian Pounds is the average of the Living Expenses of a Family in September 2021

Based on its issue No. 1036, Kassioun adopts a specific method to calculate the living expenses of a Syrian family of 5. This method consists in calculating the costs of the necessary food basket (according to the daily need of an individual for 2400 calories from various food sources). For this aim, Kassioun depended on calculating the main meal of an individual during one day, which was formulated by the Innovation and Self-reliance Conference of the General Federation of Trade Unions in Syria in 1987, and from which the productive citizen receives the calories that guarantee her/his life and reproduce her/his workforce again).  It was also taken into consideration that these food costs represent 60% of the total living expenses of the family, while the remaining 40% represents other essential needs for the family (the costs of housing, transportation, education, clothing, healthcare, household appliances, tele-communications, and others).

Kassioun Editorial 1034: NO to All Forms of Displacement

This crisis in itself has become additional evidence, not of a situation specific to one part of Syria, but to the overall Syrian situation for years. The situation is intensifying in that every new crisis that emerges – starting with the chronic living crises in the various forms, to security, political, and social crises – gets added to the preceding crises and remains unresolved, even increasing in severity as time passes.
