Turkey - SMART

The United Nations said that humanitarian situation in the Rukban camp on the Syrian-Jordanian border, 240 kilometers southeast of Homs, Central Syria, is horrible.

Ali al-Zaatari, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Syria, stated that the situation of families residing in the camp is still horrible. Many families have been living in the camp for three years.

The UN called for long-term solutions for the camp, including insuring safe exists for the camp's residents to safe areas they choose.

The statement mentioned that over five days, the UN and the Syrian Red Crescent have provided humanitarian aid for 50 thousand forcibly displaced people (FDP) in the camp and vaccinated five thousand children.

Al-Zaatrai added that the UN in Syria calls for another aid convoy, with winter supplies, before the end of 2018.

A few days ago, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry stated that Jordan, Russia, and the United States seek a solution to transport the FDP from the al-Rukban camp to their homes.

These statements came after a UN aid convoy escorted by the Syrian Red Crescent entered the Rukban camp after more than one month under siege. The Syrian government forces besieged the camp, preventing the entry of food and medical supplies.

About 175 children in the camp have suffered from malnutrition in the last month. Several children died in the camp due to the lack of health and medical care. A sandstorm caused breathing problems among the FDP.

The camp is home to 50,000 people who suffer amidst the lack of basic necessities and deteriorating medical and educational conditions. The residents of the camp protested the lack of aid from humanitarian organizations.
