Hêvî Foundation Continues to build School Desks

The Hêvî Foundation team continues to fund the building of school desks in Kobane. So far over 300 desks have already been built and delivered to the local schools.

However, thousands of children continue to miss out on schooling due to lack of basic school supplies including desks. Considering the ongoing war and the psychological impacts on the children access to schooling is an important way of regaining a sense of normalcy and establishing routine.

The camps of North Syria Require Urgent Aid

Due to the on going conflict with ISIS and the security situation thousands of Syrians have been internally displaced or forced to flee to neighboring countries.

This situation has resulted in millions being internally displaced, with thousands fleeing to the northern parts of Syria, known as Rojava.

From Kobane city, to Cezire and Efrin several IDP camps have been set up. However, the camp administrators are struggling with lack of basic supplies, and require significant help in supporting the displaced.

The lack of sanitation is a serious problem.

Sanitation remains a key area of need in the camps.  Mishtanur camp in Kobane is one such example. The camp was established two years ago, but lack the appropriate materials, including the tents that the families stay in.

The ongoing embargo and border closures prevents many NGOs and humanitarian supplies from entering into north Syria. This problem continues to prevent the region being able to support the displaced. For this reason local NGOs are an important tool in supporting the displaced and the traumatized communities.

Hêvî will continue to support the camps through providing them with basic supplies such as food packages, sanitation products, winter clothes and other essentials.

The quality of the tents is a major problem facing camp administrators in Kobane’s Mishtanur Camp.

Lack of access to clean water is another issue.
