Based in HATAY
Welthungerhilfe was established in Turkey specifically to provide help to the people who are affected by the Syria crises. As such Welthungerhilfe will stay in Turkey for a limited amount of time depending on the crises and funding availability. When the need for Welthungerhilfe’s projects comes to an end or if enough funding cannot be secured, the activities will stop completely or will downsize. All employees are informed accordingly during the recruitment process. Welthungerhilfe offers time-bound or other types of contract, depending on legal aspects and continuity of the funding and projects.
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. In addition, CVA-based COVID-19 related and winterization support, complementary to the Emergency Social Safety Net (ESSN), would continue. Exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on both refugee and host communities, the need to provide multi-layered, multi-sectoral support to service providers have increased immensely. This project will be self-implemented by WHH through the existing capacities in its Gaziantep and Hatay offices based on existing projectswhich will be merged in the new project. Strong coordination relationships with governmental organizations and local authorities exist in both cities.
