Displacement in Syria is a story that is repeated over and over endlessly, due to intermittent military operations, as families move with their children to any place where they can find safety, far from the sounds of bombing and the horror of battles.
As soon as the displaced families reach safety, a new suffering begins; no shelter in which to settle in. Tents are very expensive and renting a house is impossible for them due to the lack of a source of income for most of these families.
Luck reaches many displaced families, so they can get a tent from the humanitarian organizations working in the area, but the joy of many of them does not last long. With the advent of the winter season and the intensification of rain and winds, many tents are damaged, some of them demolished, and the displaced family returns to a new season of new and old chapters of suffering.
Takaful Al Sham launched a ” Dwelling ” project in response to the displaced families to support their steadfastness. The project provides new tents for newly displaced families and supports families whose tents were damaged by winter floods and by replacing the damaged tents with new tents. Besides the provided tents to the displaced families, baskets of non-food items are distributed to enable them from starting a new life of unknown duration until they have the opportunity to return to their homes.
The project included a number of camps in the countryside of Aleppo and Idleb Governorates in northern Syria.
