Project Report | May 23, 2023
Turkey-Syria EQ Projects Update

By Salima Biglary | Programs and Partnerships Officer

In Turkey:

IBC is continuing its emergency response efforts in the earthquake-affected areas in collaboration with AFAD, the Turkish Red Crescent, municipalities, governorates, and all relevant stakeholders. The Blue Crescent Foundation operates in eight regions in Turkey, namely Adyaman, Gaziantep, Hatay, Izmir, Kahramanmaras, Kilis, Malatya, and Sanlurfa, as well as in five camps in El-Bab in northwest Syria, including operations in Azaz camps and villages, including the pre-earthquake office. As of April, IBC has completed the establishment of three community centers, child-friendly spaces, and one mother-child care center in the earthquake-affected areas.

IBC serves over 2,000 hot meals daily through the mobile kitchens it has set up in the region. Regular hot meal distributions will continue in Islahiye container cities, Kredi Yurtlar Kurumu, Fevzipasa district, camp construction sites, and tent cities in Kirikhan / Hatay where access to hot meals is limited. Among the most vulnerable groups affected by the earthquake, children undoubtedly hold the top priority. IBC provides clothing, health assistance (including medication and mobile medical services), hygiene materials, baby diapers, and formula support for newborns, children under the age of three, and school-age children.

The aim is to meet the needs of children of all age groups and prevent potential risks such as secondary and tertiary health issues, hygiene problems, and delayed or stunted development. The container houses in Kirikhan/Hatay are provided through partnerships of IBC with Caritas, Conrad Hilton Foundation, Corus International, King Baudouin Foundation, IDRF Canada, Muslim Charity, World Jewish Relief, and World Vision. Good Neighbors International supports child-friendly spaces and psychosocial activity areas. IBC extends its gratitude to all its partners for their support, on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries.

 

In North West Syria: 

IBC's Syria team continued their visits to tent camps within the scope of the mobile clinic project this week. The camps visited included Qatar Village, Al Hadath Camp, Sosnbat Camp, Tadiff Village, and Tadif Camp. Community health teams reached a total of 1,568 individuals in the camps visited this week, and 45 patients were transferred to hospitals with ambulances coordinated by IBC.

In addition, work continues at the Dabiq Health Center. This week, services were provided for 1,691 patients with the transfers made by IBC ambulances in Dabiq.

Through the collaboration between IBC and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the project has reached 3,259 beneficiaries so far. In the Soran region, infrastructure work has begun for a storage system with a clean water production capacity of approximately 100 tons in cooperation with MSF.
