Qatar Charity (QC) recently implemented four projects to provide more than 6,000 tents along with 12,000 plastic insulators for the benefit of some 5,800 displaced families in the Idlib Governorate in northern Syria.
This intervention came in response to the worsening humanitarian conditions associated with the fresh displacement within Syria, based on a need assessment by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
These relief projects aim at preserving the dignity of displaced families by setting up a safe shelter and providing necessary services for them.
Lately, the huge exodus to northern and northwestern rural areas of Aleppo and Idlib has dramatically caused overcrowding in the exiting camps, increasing the need for more tents to shelter families. Eng. Ahmed Al Jasem, housing and sheltering official at QC’s Turkey office, said the field teams have completed all projects, keeping distances between the tents for public safety.
The beneficiaries expressed their delight at the implementation of the projects, thanking benefactors and QC for supporting them.
QC has set up a camp consisting of 1,200 residential caravans with necessary infrastructure in Azaz, north of Aleppo Governorate, and is planning to establish several new camps due to the urgent need in this domain.
QC provides assistance to shelter the affected Syrian people, including internally displaced persons (IPDs) and refugees. The assistance includes tents, residential units (caravans) in some camps, house rents, blankets, winter clothes, furniture and basic supplies for residential units.
Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, QC has so far managed to establish 11 model villages, that include about 5,492 prefabricated or concrete residential units, in addition to the provision of 100 temporary shelters and 15 accommodation centres for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, and the replacement of tents by caravans in the Za’tari camp in Jordan.
