To date, and after all the news arriving through the television, newspapers and social media, nobody will be surprised when we say that we are living one of the worst refugee crisis of this century.
Since the conflict between army of Bashar al-Assad and the rebels began in March 2011, according to a BBC article, more than 4.000.000 people have escaped from Syria to neighboring countries searching a decent life.
We are clearly facing a migration crisis that transcends borders, thousands of people crossing the countries with complicated and dangerous conditions. In the first half of this year, approximately 160.000 people arrived from different countries through the Mediterranean, an 83% higher than a year ago. The worst thing of this numbers is that all these people, more than 6.400 are children and half these children were unaccompanied by family, they were alone.
Aldeas Infantiles SOS are available to help Syrian refugees in different points of their way and put at service of these families and children unattended all of their attention. Internationally, the organization is being coordinated with a joint action and, in every recipient country, they are working with the relevant authorities and other social entities for giving an effective response. Moreover, in the home countries, like Syria, Aldeas Infantiles SOS maintains all of their programs trying to normalize children’s daily life, as far as possible, in a country in conflict, ensuring their protection, nutrition, health, education and games.
“Children are supposed have to smile all the time, no have pain or misery. All of our team are working hard to obtain this important aim, for that, we collaborate with the nutritional supplement for the children.”- Loubana Al Jadaly, Aldeas Infantiles worker
Nicequest, after to help children to have access to a quality education, wants to collaborate with Aldeas Infantiles SOS in order to 500 refugees, specially unaccompanied children, young mothers, mothers with children (especially malnourished children under 5 years) and pregnant women will receive an emergency kit with alimentation and sanitation products and specific material to tackle their urgent needs.
Futhermore, Aldeas Infantiles SOS will provide adequate care and assistance, medical and psycho-social support to children and families, useful information for their travel and they will distribute emergency kits with food and sanitation packages, raincoats, blankets and basic hygiene items based on refugees needs.
The Syrian conflict not have a solution in sight and the attempts for achieve a political solution have failed. For this reason, any outside help is very important for all of these people fighting for a better life.
