The “Strengthening the Resilience of the Earthquake Survivors and Supporting Their Wellbeing Project,” carried out with the support and collaboration of OXFAM-KEDV (Foundation for the Support of Women’s Work), seeks to develop and implement measures against the risks faced by earthquake survivors in the area of protection. By mitigating existing risks, the Project aims to improve the mental well-being of survivors through awareness-raising activities.
The “Refugee Protection, Community Outreach, and Solutions in Urban Areas Project” is being implemented in partnership with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR). Following the earthquake that occurred on 6 February 2023 in the epicenter of Kahramanmaraş, the Project, having its scope extended, began providing protection services to those affected by the earthquake.
Implemented in collaboration with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the “ASAM: Mental Health & Psycho-Social Support (MHPSS) to Earthquake Survivors Project” aims to improve the psychosocial wellbeing of earthquake survivors and mitigate further psychosocial risks.
With the “Child, Adolescent and Family Support Hubs Project”, launched in cooperation with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), protection services and support services for increasing psychosocial wellbeing are offered to children and their families in emergency situations.
The “Awareness Raising on Mental Health Psycho-Social Support for the Refugees Living in Türkiye”, implemented with the financial support of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aims to generate and spread content with regards to mental health and psychosocial support to come up with solutions for the challenges experienced by refugees and primary health care providing institutions in terms of MHPSS.
