FIVE THOUSAND REFUGEES LEFT TO THEIR OWN DEVICES AT THE AKDA CAMP
Investigations | 15 Nov 2014

The Akda camp near the border with Turkey is home to nearly five thousand Syrians fleeing from the fighting zones, and the regime bombing, which has destroyed many homes.

Displaced people in this camp are suffering from a shortage of drinking water, as well as of appropriate tents in which to live. The complete absence of health services has only compounded the poor conditions, especially after the spread of disease due to exposed sewage water.

Abu Saeed, a father of five children, says: "We came to the Akda camp three months ago. There is nothing to sustain life here, and no financial support either."

The large numbers of those displaced after ISIS' control of the villages and towns in the countryside north of Aleppo, have posed an additional burden on the camp management, who are unable to fulfill their needs, due of the lack of the support receive.

Ibrahim Hafez, one of the officials in the camp, explains to Rozana, that "the situation at Akda camp is tragic. It lacks many of the most basic services, medical care, and education; not to mention the dirt road between the tents, which turn to mud in the winter."
