IBC Accelerates Its Work in Syrian Border Camps
Every year, the winter season renews the pain of thousands of families struggling to survive in tent camps, half of whom were IDPs, and fled to safer areas during the conflict. Especially in the Afrin Region, hundreds of tents, which are the living spaces of refugees, are flooded with heavy rains, and education and training activities in the region are also disrupted.
While IBC has been providing support to the border camps, which have become the center of the tragedy, since the first days of the crisis, it has made its relief activities even more comprehensive, especially in the winter months.
After the needs assessment studies were carried out regularly in the region, the IBC Cross-Border Projects Team met the needs of 600 families whose tents were rendered unusable due to the flood and storm.
Relief efforts were carried out with the support of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and the coordination of AFAD providing food, clothing, and shelter, prioritizing children. IBC, which tries to create safe spaces for children whose education, mental health, and even their lives are at risk, provided winter boots and coats of 1600 students at Al-Kadisiye Primary School.
Developing rapid solutions for the border regions, where the humanitarian crisis is exponentially increasing day by day, IBC will continue to expand its projects until there is no one left without access to basic needs.
