Displacement in Syria has been repeating endlessly due to intermittent military operations. Families move with their children randomly to 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 or savings for most of these families.
Luck is on many displaced families when 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 the ” 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 in northern Syria.
