Paving Camps’ Roads

About the project:

Due to the large displacement which affected the Syrian cities towards the north of Syria with the lack of adequate shelter for this number of displaced persons, and in order to meet this urgent need, many random camps have been established which in fact do not meet the most basic humanitarian needs.

The paved roads are almost non-existent in the most informal camps in northern Syria, which causes additional great suffering for the displaced, especially in the winter season, as the camp inhabitants face great difficulty in accessing water and humanitarian aid to them when it rains, due to the nature of the dirt land, as cars cannot walk in the camp in addition to Reach it.

Takaful Al-Sham Charity launched the camp roads paving project to reduce this suffering by paving large camp roads which are inhabited by a large number of internally displaced persons.

The first activity of this project was implemented in the new Akdah camp, which is located  Shamarin village, Azaz in the northern countryside of Aleppo. About 13,900 persons live in the camp, displaced from various Syrian villages and cities, and its residents face great difficulty in the winter season due to the nature of dusty ground.

The camp’s road, which is 1,500 meters long and 4 meters wide, was paved to ease movement and facilitate the arrival of water and aid vehicles to the camp residents.
