Appeal: the deterioration of the health situation in the camps of the displaced Afrin rural Aleppo North
Migrants in the Afrin area in the temporary camps in the Shahba area suffer from poor humanitarian conditions, lack of services, lack of international support, and the inability of local organizations that supervise self-management activities to respond adequately from various aspects.
“Sardam” camp near the village of Tel Sousin in the northern countryside of Aleppo cares about the population of the increase of diseases due to high temperatures in the absence of the necessary medicines.
“There is a great shortage of medicines at the Kurdish Red Crescent Point and our potential does not allow the purchase of medicines from pharmacies,” NPA news agency quoted Suad Sabri, one of the displaced women from Afrin, who lives in the camp, as saying that there was a lack of medicines and doctors to treat her daughter. The camp is very difficult.
The offices of the Kurdish Red Crescent, a self-administered organization linked to the Health Authority, confirmed that skin diseases and bites of insects, such as donkeys, are the most common diseases in the camp and accompany the summer.
High temperatures, dust, dust, lack of fans and food-preserving refrigerators are the main causes of many diseases.
Most of the women in the Sardam camp suffer from sunburn as a result of their work hours during the transfer of water to the camp, and according to the nature of the area, which is mostly dry because of the absence of trees, insects are spread as much as the relatives, increasing the incidence of bites.
The Red Crescent pointed to the weak potential and acute shortage of medicines and medical staff in the Kurdish Red Crescent, indicating that most of the medicines provided by the organizations are almost expired. And that the Kurdish Red Crescent is treating between 100 and 90 cases a day.
