Life has been difficult for people living in Atma village, Idlib suburbs. These areas have been badly affected by the crisis, leaving people disadvantaged and in need of humanitarian assistance.
Islamic Relief has been working in Qah camp, making sure that people who have left their homes behind have access to safe sanitation systems.
The project, implemented in partnership with Turkish NGO The Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, has helped around 1,000 displaced families.
Like thousands of others, Abu Ahmed, 65, from Marat Al Noman, was forced to flee his home because of the intensified crisis. He now lives with his seven children in Qah camp near the Turkish border.
Conditions in the camp are difficult and at night time especially it is very cold and difficult to endure. There is a critical need for blankets, mattresses and warm clothes to support people through the winter.
Abu Ahmed said: “We hope to return back to our homes soon. We can’t stay here for a long time especially at winter time. Islamic Relief’s help for us minimized the cold and protected our children.”
