Winter mounts suffering of Syrian displaced- Zaman TV


 
(Zaman Al Wasl TV)- Suffering of more than 5.3 million Syrians mount in the winter season amid lack of basic supplies, shelter and blankets in the opposition-held areas and neighbouring Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq.
 
Displaced people are waiting for the organizations and camp administrations to start preparing for the winter months by providing insulators and heating devices that will enable them to withstand the difficult months ahead. For many displaced persons, this wait will be longer given the increase in the number of people arriving to the camps fleeing the fighting in the Syrian Jizera area. 
 
Syrian Refugees are particularly vulnerable during winter months when temperatures dip below freezing as already desperate and destitute refugee families cannot cope with the costs of heating, insulation and adequate clothing.

“Winter cash assistance has proved to be the most effective and flexible way of supporting vulnerable refugee families in Jordan.An additional 50,000 vulnerable Syrian refugees in Jordan will receive much needed assistance this winter UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, announced today.

Refugee camp managers and organizations operating in the region said none of them have started preparing for the coming winter, nor are there any plans in the short term to prepare. 
 
Jordan currently shelters more than 655,000 registered Syrian refugees. The vast majority, almost 80 per cent, live outside of the three refugee camps. For most of them, this will be their seventh winter in displacement. (With UNHCR)
