The COVID-19 outbreak has affected IDP's and refugees, limiting access to food and other necessities. Each day more and more people arrive to the Iraqi border in north-east Syria where they hope to find safety from the violence. The Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights is working together with local human rights workers to provide internally displaced people with food, water, blankets and other necessities that have been limited due to COVID-19.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has only worsened the situation for IDPs and refugees. Many human rights workers have left the region. Food and necessities have become even more scarce. Each day more and more people arrive to the Iraqi border where they hope to find safety from the violence. Most Internally Displaced People (IDPs) arrive to the border with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.
The Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights is working together with aide workers to provide funding necessary to acquire these resources. All donations collected here will go directly to procuring and transporting clothing, blankets, food, water and other necessities to displaced people seeking refuge in Northeast Syria. We will not ignore people in need during this outbreak.
Without basic necessities, these internally displaced people will suffer from sickness, dehydration, and other preventable conditions. Our work follows the core values set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We believe in human dignity and promote respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms set out in the Declaration. We help survivors of human rights violations, regardless of their age, gender, ethnic or religious affiliation.
