This is Sara's* nephew. Sara*, a 31-year-old woman displaced from Aleppo, lives with her children in a camp in northern Idlib. "Despite our fatigue during travel and the continuous shelling, I felt so happy when I met my son, my brother and his wife. I haven’t seen them for more than a year. Despite our suffering inside the camp, we are glad that we survived. I cannot even imagine what could have happened to us if we stayed in Aleppo. I decided to leave with my family and leave our house to save our lives and our children," she says.
"Today, I am in a small camp in northern Idlib with my husband and my son. I can finally be with my son. But the situation is very difficult here and there is no work and no income for us. However, it is still better compared to what we lived in Aleppo during the shelling," said Sara
"The most important thing we need now is to create job opportunities for young people so they can work and meet the needs of their families. As you can see, we live in the camp and cannot provide for our needs easily. Our children get sick because of the atmosphere and the difficult conditions. We cannot provide them with medicine or food. We hope you will not forget us because we are depending on your aid to survive and to cover our children's needs."
Sara’s family is supported by cash vouchers from Syria Relief, a CARE partner in northwestern Syria.
The recent escalation of violence in northwestern Syria, including in areas in and around the demilitarized zone has caused the displacement of more than 150,000 people within a week, while aerial attacks on population centers and civilian infrastructure resulted in dozens of civilian deaths and injuries.
