1837 families receive Hygiene Kits in January 2018

On January 25th, Operation Mercy staff and local day workers, distributed Hygiene Kits to 1,837 Syrian refugee families in the Domiz 2 camp, in Northern Iraq. The kit was composed of hygiene items such as toothpaste, shampoo, floor cleaner, soaps and sanitary pads. It was a beautiful cool day and people were eager to smile and laugh.

Prior to the distribution, our Operation Mercy local staff went through several empowerment trainings reminding them of their value and worth, and how to best interact with beneficiaries. Our local staff did a great job greeting and treating all of the refugees with love and respect. The distribution was very organized, which the beneficiaries greatly appreciated and commented on. Many beneficiaries said they feel respected by and honored by how organized and fair the distribution is. While waiting in line, the beneficiaries enjoyed discussing what their favorite Syrian food or sweet is.

The much-needed hygiene kits help the Syrian Refugees to stay clean and healthy during the rainy winter season.

Operation Mercy has decided to stop the distribution project in Domiz 2 in order to focus more on their existing development projects in the same location.  Operation Mercy is currently running a Women’s Fitness project in Domiz 2, which improves the mental and physical health of the participants.  In addition, they run a Mobility project in Domiz 2, which focuses on improving the lives of children and adults with disabilities.

Thank you so much for partnering with us to bring help and hope to these families.

Please share this update with others who might be interested in supporting this project so that more families can be given an opportunity of surviving this difficult time and starting a new life.
