Emergenza Libano

COVID-19 (update April 2020)

A crisis within a crisis. Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Un Ponte Per has been adapting existing projects and launching new ones to contain the virus in North-East Syria.

The situation here is extremely precarious following the Turkish military attack in Octobre 2019. It is estimated that the invasion created 70,000 IDPs, and only 1 fully functioning hospital of the 16 in the area.

The protection of the most vulnerable people is now our primary goal.

More than half the hospitals in Syria (84 of which have been bombed since December, according to WHO) were destroyed in 9 years of war. The country has been in lockdown since 13th March, but our clinics are fully equipped and open, although they are not receiving many patients due to fear of infection.

The biggest concern is the camps, where overcrowding could trigger a a very fast rate of infection.

Un Ponte Per, together with partner organisations including the Kurdish Red Crescent, is setting up special Cover wards in 3 hospitals, equipped with 18 intensive care beds, 42 sub-intensive care beds and a triage system run by specially trained medical teams.

 

 

Once again the Syrian people are under attack and forced to flee, after having already fled their homes at least once during these 9 years of conflict.

People in refugee camps are more than 70.000.

 The entire health care system we have worked on, now is at risk of collapsing. We must be aware of one thing: the priority of the population is to find a safe shelter. There are still thousands of people living far from their homes, almost 10% of the entire population.

The lack of safe shelters creates a problem especially at a health care level, but not only. Suffice it to say that 70% of the schools are currently occupied by displaced people. That means that children haven’t been in schools for months”, explains Pedro, UPP doctor.
