Turkey hosts more than half of the 6 million Syrians displaced by the war. There are refugee camps financed by UNHCR and managed by Afad, the Turkish government agency whose assistance programs nevertheless meet the primary needs of approximately 300,000 Syrians. The most difficult situation is that of those who live outside the official camps.
SSCh has been operating for 10 years in one of the spontaneous camps that arose along the Turkish-Syrian border. These camps differ from government ones due to the total absence of humanitarian aid. The living conditions are unimaginable. SSCh is the only company that takes charge of these ‘invisible’ places by entering and operating directly on site. It takes care of over 900 families for a total of 6000 people of which 4000 are minors. Among these, several hundred are orphans.
