Catastrophic situation, displaced waiting for international organizations to fulfill their promises


AL-TABQA – The displaced in a village west of al-Raqqa province dream of a tent protects them from winter’s cold, a doctor to heal their patients in a camp where the child wishes to carry the pen to get his right to learn.TEBQA-KAMBA-TOIHNA (2)

In Twaihina village, in al-Jarniah town, west of al-Raqqa province, al-Twaihina camp has 2870 families who fled from the war after the mercenary groups, the regime forces and their allies destroyed their homes in a power struggle that has continued since March 2011.

Despite the promises made by international organizations to ensure the minimum standard of living for these displaced people living in the camp, which opened last summer, the displaced says another speech, where they lack many things for their urgent life, but the organizations did not keep their promises.

In spite of all these difficulties, the camp’s doors are still open to receive the displaced from all the Syrian areas, which are witnessing bloody conflicts. According to the management of the camp, more than 400 fleeing families were received from areas under the control of the Syrian regime, specifically from the countryside of Hama and Homs governorates in central Syria last month.

Local relief organizations are providing assistance to the displaced, but the potential of Relief and Development Organization and Rojava organization are insufficient to meet the needs of all displaced persons as international organizations continue to neglect the camp conditions.TEBQA-KAMBA-TOIHNA (4)

“We turned to God and then to the camp. The displaced people did not receive heaters or food, the families do not have tents to shelter in. If we stay in this situation, we would prefer to return to our destroyed homes,” said the displaced Ahmed al-Obeid.

The number of elderly and persons with special needs in the camp reached to 615 persons who were unable to meet their own needs, as well as 111 people with half paralysis, paralysis of the cerebral palsy and a number of blinds.
“We have not received food or cleaning materials. We are unable to move. We have nothing,” said Aisha al-Issa, an elderly displaced woman.

Most children in the camp do not know how to read and write to the point where they dreamed of carrying a pen in the camp, which has 6157 children.

Doctors without Borders Organization is making limited visits to the camp, which lacks a fixed medical point to treat patients in12516-acre camp, where symptoms of skin diseases have begun to appear on the bodies of a number of displaced people.

Camp administration warned of an impending catastrophe if the situation continued in the camp.
