+++ After 13 years of war, around two thirds of Syria's inhabitants are in need of humanitarian aid. 12 million people, more than half of the population, do not know how to ensure their food security. Roxana Romanica (Head of Program in Northwest Syria) reports after a project visit to the Talha/Azaz refugee camp: "It was tough to bear to see how the people in the Talha/Azaz refugee camp in northwest Syria are forced to live. After 13 years of civil war, the hardship of families is becoming greater and greater and at the same time the funding for assistance is getting scarcer and scarcer." +++ Syria's recent past is marked by oppression, violence and destruction. Since 1963, the country has been ruled autocratically. Demonstrations against the government in 2011 developed into a civil war, which continues to this day and has resulted in several hundred thousand deaths. About 6.4 million have fled abroad, most of them to neighboring countries. Another 7.2 million Syrians are displaced in their own country. According to UN estimates, 12.9 million Syrians are no longer able to secure enough food for themselves, which is more than half of the country's population. Welthungerhilfe and its partners support people in Syria, Türkiye and Lebanon. This work is coordinated by the office in Gaziantep, Türkiye.
