İlan Detayları


Protestant Agency for Diakonie and Development (Evangelisches Werk fur Diakonie und Entwicklung- EWDE) – Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe (DKH) - with headquarters in Germany, is a humanitarian agency providing funds for emergency aid worldwide. DKH’s Regional Office West and Central Asia, based in Amman (Jordan) provides comprehensive program support to DKH Project Offices and local partners in the region. The Middle East Multiple Country Program (ME-MCP) currently implements programs in Türkiye, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza/oPT, and Iraq. Presently, the program is implementing multiple projects in Türkiye responding to the February 2023 earthquakes that affected the country (and Syria).

In order to respond to the earthquake response, DKH developed a Crisis Strategy (2023-2025) that outlines the need for ongoing Protection and MHPSS interventions targeting refugees. According to DKH’s approach, the projects are implemented through local partner organization, Support to Life. Through this consultancy role, DKH intends to be able to technically support our partner organization in the implementation of individual protection interventions. DKH’s protection program, together with its partner, aims to connect vulnerable and marginalized communities to available governmental and non-governmental services using case management, individual protection intervention, outreach, and MHPSS approaches. The protection program addresses and mitigates protection concerns of the vulnerable/marginalized refugees in Türkiye through the provision of critical information and awareness raising on rights, obligations, and services available. Furthermore, sensitization and advocacy work are undertaken by connecting with key stakeholders and service providers to assist vulnerable individuals in accessing basic, social, and protective services available under the provisions of Temporary and International Protection regulations in Türkiye.
