The Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has immediately responded to the recent wave of mass displacement in the northern governorates of Syria.
QRCS’s field teams distributed food and nonfood items to the internally displace persons (IDPs). The distributions benefited more than 23,800 IDPs, and the work is still in progress.
At the same time, mobile medical clinics were deployed by QRCS’s medical professionals to IDP destinations, in order to provide access to primary healthcare and medications free-of-charge, and refer critical cases to specialised hospitals.
In terms of psychological health, Psychological First Aid (PFA) and socio-psychological support was given to children, and psychiatric cases were referred to specialised mental centres.
Community-health teams responded by testing malnutrition among children ranging 0.5-5 years of age, as well as malnutrition among pregnant women and nursing mothers. It also distributed preventive nutritional materials, and held health risk awareness sessions.
