The northern Syrian camps are facing difficult and sequential conditions, with the succession of summer and winter seasons every year.
And to help the displaced families, Watan intervened alongside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and distributed basic shelter materials in addition to installing and cleaning tents for families who are suffering of harsh conditions of displacement, amounting to 15,000 winter baskets, 17,000 emergency baskets, 10,000 tents, and screening 8 thousand tents. Furthermore, to rearrange the place, our team improved the tent sites by clearing 15 km of roads with connection to sewage networks to reduce the risks of pollution and the causes of epidemics among children. Also, the place was lit within the camps by installing 150 lighting poles to facilitate the movement of walkers at night and help families to meet their needs during midnight.
