The displaced people in the camps do not receive adequate shelter equipped with sufficient capacity for normal life, as epidemics and diseases spread due to the lack of bathrooms and sanitation networks in addition to the scarcity of water. As the displaced people of many camps have to walk for long distances, just to reach a source of water from which they can provide enough water to use it in their daily needs.
Suqya project, launched by Takaful Al Sham, came to alleviate the suffering of the displaced persons in the camps, and support them, by providing integrated services within the water and sanitation sector, including the following:
• Building new latrines
• Preparing and periodically emptying collective sewage pits
• Providing water tanks
• Water trucking on daily basis
• Distributing hygiene baskets
• Providing health awareness sessions
The scope of the project extended to cover the camps of Dana, Sarmada and Deir Hassan in the Idleb countryside in Northern Syria.
