Humanitarian situation / SI intervention
With the Syrian crisis now in its 6th year, 13.5 million people require humanitarian assistance, including 6 million IDPs and 5.7 million in severe need, according to the Humanitarian Needs Overview 2017 (OCHA HNO, 2017). Over half of the population have been forced from their homes, and many people have been displaced multiple times. Children and youth represent more than half of the displaced, as well as half of those in need of humanitarian assistance. In the absence of a political solution to the conflict, intense and widespread hostilities are likely to persist in 2017-2018. Many frontlines may move in 2017 and control over territories by the different parties is under constant change causing influx of IDPs. 6,100 individuals are estimated to be newly displaced every day in Syria.
SI acknowledges that IDP’s living in camps and settlements require high levels of support, facing extreme levels of poverty. In addition however, as areas become accessible following the retreat of ISIS, the humanitarian community is also now faced with host populations and IDP’s living in villages with significant needs, currently going unaddressed. Si’s strategy therefore has two approaches, the first to continue and expand support to IDP’s living in informal settlements or camps in Northern Syria. The second, to provide rehabilitation support for water and sanitation infrastructure in the newly accessible areas.
Solidarites International (SI) has been present in Northern Syria since 2013. Throughout this time, the organisation has focused its activities in Aleppo Governorate, primarily Azaz, Tall Refaat and Jabel Samaan districts and is considering expanding to other locations, particularly in response to the Raqqa crisis. Over this time, SI has positively established itself as a water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH), food security & livelihoods (FSL) and non-food item (NFI) actor, working in partnership with relevant Clusters and other (I)NGO’s via cross-border operations from Turkey.
SI is now in the process of relocating its teams in Amman via a new hub to carry out its operations inside Syria while a presence will be maintained in Turkey. The expatriate team will be based in Jordan with some travel to Turkey.
Please note that the Coordination team is remotely managing operations.
