AL-IMDAAD FOUNDATION’S RESPONSE The Al-Imdaad Foundation had dispatched an emergency relief team the Syrian borders of Turkey and Jordan. Working in the refugee camps since the uprising, the Al-Imdaad Foundation provides food aid, medical projects, blankets and heaters to thousands of refugees on these borders. The Al-Imdaad Foundation also set up a clinic to cater exclusively for the medical needs of the refugees. This clinic offers a wide array of services which include general check-ups by GP’s, a gynaecology wing, a minor operations theatre and a dispensary. High value food hampers and infant care baby packs are also distributed on a regular basis. Many of the refugees in Jordan are unable to get access to refugee camps and thus our office assisted them by covering their accommodation costs. DETAIL OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT: Project: Establishment of a container village for orphans, their mothers and needy families in Syria Project Location: Tutul Village, Salkin Town of Idlib Province, Syria Project Rationale: For more than 2 years Syrian people have been seeking shelter away in order to save their lives from the fighting and in search of life necessities. Today, approximately 5 million people have been displaced within their own country, leaving thousands homeless and in need of food, water and sanitation, shelter and blankets. Access to health facilities has also become difficult or impossible in some areas due to violence, checkpoints and fuel shortages, while food prices have tripled in some areas. Refugee camps on the borders have exceeded their maximum capacity and are limiting the number of refugees entering these camps. Moreover, many families who have lost their bread winners either due to being killed or detained, families have had to flee their houses leaving all their possessions and seeking refuge within save heavens in Syria, creating a dire need for basic humanitarian aid. As winter is approaching and temperatures begin to fall, Syrian people need regular food supplies, health services, proper shelter and winter supplies urgently. Thousands of children have fled across the border, terrified and desperate for safe refuge from the violence along with their family members who have been left alive. Children face tremendous dangers on a daily basis. They are being killed, maimed and orphaned by conflict. In Syria, countless children suffer from the psychological trauma of seeing family members killed, of being separated from their parents and being terrified by the constant thunder of shelling. Many have fled their country to live in refugee camps in neighbouring countries. Basic infrastructure and public services are being systematically destroyed. Families are struggling to survive in increasingly desperate conditions. One in every five schools in Syria is destroyed, damaged or converted into shelters for displaced families thereby disrupting schooling for hundreds of thousands of children. Children and women in shelters are more exposed to unsanitary conditions, including unsafe drinking water and a lack of water for personal hygiene, placing them at further risk of water-borne diseases including acute respiratory infections and skin diseases such as scabies. Due to security, not many organizations are providing means of humanitarian aid to those displaced families within Syria. This project is designed to establish container villages with all necessary items for the orphaned children, their mothers / guardians and needy families in different parts of Idlib Province of Syria in order to provide them a safe haven and to fulfill their basic life necessities and services. This is the minimum right that every child in the world deserves to have. PROJECT LOCATION: Al-Imdaad Foundation plans to establish the proposed project in Tutul Village, Salkin Town of Idlib Province with an aim to establish such centers across Syria.
