SEEKING REFUGE - TURKEY
Refugee Aid Sites, Syria & Turkey
Refugees are at increased risk of becoming ill, malnourished, abused or exploited. Millions of children have been forced to quit school. Millions more have gone to work for pittance wages. And adults and children alike are suffering from injuries and illnesses caused by the crossfire of war or the crossing of borders. The need for medical supplies to treat the sick and wounded remains high in refugee camps and amongst the urban refugees living in surrounding communities. Medical facilities inside Syria also regularly report urgent and ongoing needs for medicines, supplies and equipment.
In 2016, Globus Relief teamed up with partners Islamic Relief USA and ANSAGIAD, a local Turkish NGO based in Ankara, to help address these ongoing medical needs. Coordination began in February, as ANSAGIAD engaged with relevant medical advisors in Syria and with refugee communities and government agencies in Turkey to determine the extent of the need. In April, Globus Relief shipped 12 containers with over $5 million of medical supplies and equipment. Local Islamic Relief and ANSAGIAD workers coordinated with hospitals, community leaders, governments, camp clinics and other local associations and point-of-use locations to ensure timely and organized delivery of the aid to Turkish refugee camps, private and public hospitals, and Syrian medical facilities and refugee camps. These materials have made a difference in the lives of the refugees; a demonstration human civility in the face of civil unrest.
