More than 108 camps were affected by the massive rainfalls in Idlib and Aleppo countryside during the last 48 hours.
#Syria: Dire conditions in many of the displacement camps in Idlib after heavy rain
More funding urgently needed to upgrade these camps & get people out of these appalling conditions
This photo, taken on January 17, 2021, shows Kafr Orouq IDP Camp in the northern suburbs of Idlib governorate, where roads and a number of tents were flooded following torrential rainfall in the area last night. SNHR notes that the recent severe weather conditions in the area is exposing the IDPs to additional suffering. SNHR calls on international relief organizations to provide the camp’s residents with urgently needed essential humanitarian provisions immediately and to provide the administration of the camp with a number of tents for emergency cases.
This is how children sleep yesterday in a camp, and this is the case for only one family out of thousands of families whose tents were flooded due to the winter rains today in the northern Syrian camps in Idlib and Aleppo countryside.
This is “lockdown” for millions of displaced people in #Syria. Stuck in a tent in the rain in the middle of winter
These children have known nothing but war. They’ve never lived in anything but a tent
10 years being displaced bombed gassed and shot at now their tent and whatever small things they had: a gas stove, some rugs to keep warm: swept away in these floods. we must immediately help more and more . #syria
The NW regions of Syria are affected by a severe heat wave that exceeds 40° and this region is the most affected by these heat waves, especially the displaced people in camps spread in Idlib governorate.
The recent heat wave is still continuing till now has caused fainting and unconsciousness among the camp residents as a result of enragedness by the roofs that supposed to protect them.
The residents of the IDPs camps in Idlib governorate fleeing death face another inevitable death that will rob them of their lives and the lives of their children as a result of their presence in uninhabitable agricultural lands, which made them more vulnerable at every moment due to the appearance of poisonous snakes and scorpions that threaten their safety, especially during the heat waves.
Also, people have missed preparing their main meals inside the tents because of the frequent fires that occurred inside the tents. The preparation of main meals became dispensed with, as many cases of poisoning due to food spoilage were recorded. All of this is due to the poor
Humanitarian conditions and the lack of available resources that would limit many of these disasters experienced by civilians in northern Syria.
Lack of basics:
Thousands of displaced people live in camps without roofs or walls to protect them from heat waves.
The displaced also lack electricity, which could be a simple alternative to help them run ventilation fans or cool water.
In light of the lack of all the basic ingredients to avoid the heat wave, some displaced people resorted to almost impoverished possibilities that might relieve them of this suffering to spray tents with water, even if it was hot, and to shower with clothes or put wet towels on their heads to avoid the heat and in the best case children had the pleasure of turning barrels of water into swimming pools To relieve them from the deadly summer heat.
