The inability to return home forced IDPs to live poor conditions, like the tough weather during summer or winter. That leads  to direct health awareness and relief services to them.

That was  in cooperation with  Rojava and Acted NGOs




The shelling continues on the displaced in Al-Shahaba

The Turkish Army, backed by Islamic factions, continues to bomb the areas of Shahba, to which the people of Afrin have fled, and today three people have been killed by this attack (two children from the town of Tal Rifaat, ages 8 and 12 years , and a displaced woman from Afrin)
More than six people, all civilians from the same families, were wounded, including children and women.
The Turkish attacks on a camp area inhabited by IDPs and civilians are a blatant violation of any humanity or ethic law.
