Shelter Projects In Northern Syria
The Syrian conflict has created displacement on the scale many of us have never seen before. 6.2 million have been made refugees and 5.6 million people displaced. The Idlib crisis alone displaced more than 1 million people, many had been already displaced multiple times before in this conflict. Throughout all the sieges of the conflict – Aleppo, Homs, Eastern Ghouta, Dara’a – we have seen the familiar sight, thousands of people getting on buses, leaving their homes and fleeing for safety. They usually ended up in Idlib. Now hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced again.
Whilst every story of displacement is different, one aspect is common for all, they have no home. 5.3 million Syrians are living in inadequate shelters lacking proper bathing or cooking facilities, sufficient space and protection.
Through our shelter projects, we are helping to establish both long and short-term accommodation for some of the most vulnerable families in the hardest to reach areas in Syria as well as the surrounding countries.
