WAPK – Winterization Assistance Project for Kurdistan (Completed)
The ADRA Kurdistan identified that the most urgent winterization need was a comprehensive range of clothing suitable for children 15 – 17 years and adults.
The proposed project aims to reduce the vulnerability of crisis-affected people, including women, children, the elderly and the disabled through the provision of humanitarian standard Winter Survival Kits that are lifesavers for refugees living in tents. One kit covered three members of a six member family, includes warm footwear, socks, jackets, tracksuits, underwear, gloves, winter caps and nightwear.
The target families were in Hasanshan M2 camp. As of 8 December 2016, the Camp housed 1,220 families with up to 100 new families arriving per day. Clothing is a need for all families, as the only clothing they have is what they arrived in, plus a small packet of some clothes provided on registration. The winterization clothing package has been designed to comprehensively meet the clothing needs of men, women, boys and girls, and to complement what clothing they might be issued on arrival at the Camp.
Duration: December, 2016 to February 2017.
