Challenge

All you have to do is turn on the TV or open the internet to see the latest tragic humanitarian crisis unfold. Currently, hundreds of thousands of people are running for their lives as the Turkish Army starts an offensive against the Kurds of Northern Syria. It doesn't matter what side you are on, most of the people fleeing the hail of bullets and explosions of bombs have no ideological allegiances of any kind either. They are simply running for their lives.

Solution

We have trained Kurdish GHNI staff ready to help. Our staff lives in the village where some of the refugees are now flooding. But they need resources. There isn't time to ship meals or blankets, but they can be purchased in Iraq. These families fled with only the clothes on their backs. These people need a place to sleep and basic essentials. At this point, they don't know when they can go home or if they will have a home standing when they do return.

Long-Term Impact

Our teams are trained to transition those receiving immediate aid to a sustainable process called Transformational Community Development (TCD). As the families become more settled, GHNI teams will work to empower and uplift the adults, guiding them toward long term solutions for food, water, education for children, wellness habits and income generation in their new surroundings. These trained leaders are able to offer a hand of hope while bringing help during this crisis.
