Since 15 March 2011 millions of Syrians have fled their country because of the conflict that started in Dera with insurrections and protest. As a result of the conflict, the Syrian Crisis Humanitarian Relief Operation was started by the Turkish Red Crescent, which has been providing assistance to the victims of the armed conflict since 2011. After the establishment of temporary protection camps, apart from providing fixed menu food service, the TRC developed e-voucher food support for the Syrians within the camps after having technical meetings with the World Food Programme. Moreover, the number of Syrians who are under temporary protection within the camps is much fewer than the ones outside of the camps. Therefore the TRC has started to focus more on off-camp Syrians in its humanitarian relief programmes, such as the Community Center Project.
The Turkish Red Crescent will demonstrate methodologies to deliver humanitarian assistance in a dignified manner for empowering beneficiaries of Cash Assistance / E-Voucher Program and Community Center Program via its presentation. Video, including interviews with the beneficiaries and the program partners, will also be shown. There will be supportive documents and materials such as programme brochures prepared in English, Arabic and French, information files and promotional materials.
