    On March 11, 2011, an earthquake measuring 9.0 in magnitude struck northern Japan with the epicenter 80 miles east of Sendai, the capital of Miyagi Prefecture and 231 miles northeast of Tokyo. This earthquake then created another natural disaster, a large tsunami affecting Miyagi, Fukushima, and Iwate prefectures.

    Subsequent to the earthquake and tsunami, a third event occurred, damage to nuclear power plants with radiation leaks. Overall, the effects of this trio of events have been devastating. While the number of displaced people housed in evacuation centers has decreased since March, there is still a significant amount residing in these centers.

    Goal: War-affected Syrians live in safe and dignified conditions.
    Strategic objective 1: War-affected Syrian children in Kilis town feel an improved sense of wellbeing.
    To address the widely reported need for social outlets and physical activity for children, CRS and IBC will establish 4 Child Friendly Spaces (CFS). Staff and volunteers will provide a range of age and culturally appropriate activities including art, theatre and dance, sports, reading and free play.

    IBC field staff, with CRS technical support, will engage in community outreach to the war-affected Syrian population to identify four sites to establish CFS. Sites will be identified and evaluated through a joint community/IBC assessment.
    The exact design of CFS will be finalized according to what is available and what is needed to bring the site up to CFS standards (as per Save the Children’s CFS guidelines) for space, health/safety and staffing.

    Strategic objective 2: Extremely vulnerable war-affected Syrians in Kilis town have improved ability to cope with winter weather.
    From the information gathered to date, it is apparent that the precise living situation of families varies significantly as well as the ability for Syrians in Kilis to access basic inputs to protect them from the coming cold weather.
    These Extremely Vulnerable (EV) households will be given a voucher to spend on winterization inputs. For planning purposes, the amount for this voucher is set at USD 150, arrived at by estimating the local cost for 3 sets of children’s clothes, three warm blankets and one large mattress/carpet.
    In addition to reconfirming the market value of winterization inputs to be made available via vouchers, the market assessment will also allow CRS and IBC to confirm the local market’s ability to absorb the increased demand and the exact design of the voucher activities.

    Due to the current conflict in Syria, the number of internally displaced families in Syria is increasing. People left their homes hastily without having time or an adequate financial situation to manage a transition to live in other stable areas in Syria. They left often without being able to make arrangements to sell off their assets and belongings. The inflation and the high cost of living-particularly rented accommodations-is depleting the savings of the displaced families, making them more vulnerable and unable to cover all their needs

    This project intends to improve the living conditions of affected Syrian families in rural areas by providing access to basic needs through the distribution of winter equipment and to ameliorate their living conditions.

    Since civil unrest began in Syria in March 2011, the security situation has worsened and the lives of its people are in great danger. As a result, thousands of inhabitants from these cities and surrounding villages fled north to the Turkish border at an average of 500 families per day. Most went to the camps in the Hatay, Gaziantep and Kilis provinces. Approximately 3.000 Syrian families live in Kilis city center.

    Livelihoods and living conditions of these families are in very low level. They survive only with the support of their Turkish neighbours and relief assistance from the Municipality, AFAD and the NGOs. But the assistance mostly is food packages and hygiene kits. The expatriates living in Kilis are in a big winterization need. The weather getting colder and all children need warm clothes. The project aims to cover winter clothes needs of Syrian expatriates living in cold homes without any winterization supplies.

    The overall objective of this project was distribution of relief food aid materials (rice, cooking oil, sugar and plastic banner printing) for 2.000 IDPs in Mali.

    Mali is one of several countries across the Sahel belt affected by recurrent and frequent food security and nutrition crises. In 2012, about 4.6 million people are affected by food insecurity and more than 175,000 children are at risk of Severe Acute Malnutrition.

    Since mid-January 2012, conflict in the north has deepened existing vulnerabilities, increasing the need for humanitarian assistance. Clashes between Tuareg movements, such as the Movement National de Liberation de l’Azawad (MNLA), and the Mali armed forces resulted in massive displacement, with an estimated 159,000 IDPs and some 220,000 refugees as of the end of November 2012. A military coup d’état in March 2012 further threatened Mali’s stability and political future.

    Two hundred (200) Families heads were benefited from the relief support from International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation each family head with number of ten persons, therefore the total beneficiaries of the relief projects is two thousand (2,000) displaced persons in Konna Displaced communities in the southern province of Mali.

    The government of Mali joined the displaced communities to extend sincere gratitude and appreciation to International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation for their kind gesture. In which the displaced community realized the fact that their Brother and Sisters abroad are always thinking of them in humanitarian and development.

    This project aims to provide modest incentives to 500 youth who will be selected to act as literacy & numeracy tutors for Syrian children in ?anlıurfa. Children who have been identified by their teachers as severely in need of literacy & numeracy support, based on failing grades, will be eligible to participate in this program.

    Through the YTP, an additional aim is to promote and demonstrate an emphasis on education in the Syrian community in Turkey, thereby igniting the community to encourage their children to not drop out of school, and those out of school to attend school.

    • To develop an integrated seismic monitoring and intervention concept.
    • To increase the capacity of local institutions’ emergency intervention units for joint response activities in case of disasters.

For two months, five days a week, children will attend either schools which have become empty during the summer or spaces identified for the YTP to enhance their reading skills in preparation for the 2014-2015 school year which will begin in September.

    This project aims to provide modest incentives to 500 youth who will be selected to act as literacy & numeracy tutors for Syrian children in anlurfa. Children who have been identified by their teachers as severely in need of literacy & numeracy support, based on failing grades, will be eligible to participate in this program.

    Through the YTP, an additional aim is to promote and demonstrate an emphasis on education in the Syrian community in Turkey, thereby igniting the community to encourage their children to not drop out of school, and those out of school to attend school.
