Around 500,000 Syrians who fled their homes due to civil war are living in camps set up in parts along the Turkish-Syrian border. They are fighting with harsh winter conditions in makeshift tents and trying to survive.
The harsh weather is badly affecting those 500,000 Syrians who are living in hundreds of camps including Atme, Kerame, Kah, Bab-al Salam close to the border with Turkey.
The harsh weather conditions got worse following a 3-day downpour, which left some of the tents unusable.
According to IHH Syria Office’s investigation diseases are on the rise due to malnutrition, harsh weather, lack of clean water in the camps. What refugees need most are blankets, heating apparatus, clothes and food. In order to prevent deaths these aid materials should be delivered to the camps as soon as possible.
Syrians living in the camps also need boot and winter clothing immediately.
