Yesterday there were reports of over 40 different bombings across the North West front of the Syrian conflict and the heavy downpour has caused mass flooding in displacement camps, meaning many people who have been displaced by conflict, are now being displaced by winter conditions.
For many in the North West, especially those in displacement camps, these conditions are becoming unliveable. We have had to move people out of the tents they have to live in, which barely keep them warm during the winter nights, due to them being completely flooded.
The misery is further compounded for Syrians as 8 people were known to have been killed in Idlib alone yesterday from the escalating conflict. The impacts of both the conflict and the weather has meant there is an increasing demand for healthcare, however health facilities are limited and are regularly being targeted. Syria Relief have had a Primary Healthcare Centre that we operated and a hospital that we used to work targeted within the past three months.
We launched a winter emergency campaign last month because, whilst camps are flooded, donations are drying up.
War and winter are wreaking havoc. If it is not rain destroying temporary shelters, it is bombs destroying lives. Life, for many Syrians, is becoming beyond miserable.
