The main aim of this project is continuing the urgent support for vulnerable Syrian refugees, host communities and other non-Syrian refuges according to UNHCR”s one-refugee approach with self-implementation in the provinces of Gaziantep and Hatay and other parts of the region through referral services with UN organisations, other (I)NGOs and local authorities.

The planned activities revolve around the provision of an integrated and multi-sectoral protection support with case management and special needs funds (SNF) as the main part and reinforced by further services such as nutrition counselling, emergency shelter repair and legal aid.
