On Christmas eve, 24th December 2014, Rescue 4 Children distributed over 500 toys for Christian children in the Churches and buildings where they seek refuged in Ainkawa, a predominantly Christian suburb of the Kurdish capital city - Erbil.

For months now, around 12,000 Iraqi Christian families have been living in temporary accommodations. Most of them belong to the Chaldean, Assyrian or Catholic denominations. While going to Ainkawa in these days– one comes upon two scenes: The shimmering Christmas decorations and the thousands of families taking refuge in wrecks and rubbles. Known as Iraqi Christians, the ‘Assyrians’ commemorate the birth of Jesus, by attending religious services at church and perform various Assyrian customs. The Assyrian community lit the bonfire in the courtyard of Mar Yusif Church on Christmas Eve, followed by prayers recited by families.

Living conditions for Assyrian Christian refugees forced from their homes in northern Iraq by Islamic State militants are so desperate that a town mortuary has been converted into a kitchen and bathroom. Preparations were carried out at Mar Yusif church early on in the day by young Assyrian youth. The church grounds were being cleaned, and wood gathered together for an open fire pit, which would be lit at the traditional mass ceremony in the evening. 

We visited the displaced Christian families who have been seeking refuge in an empty unfinished construction site; the joyful spirit of Christmas was in the air. The families had put together decorations: a tree and a display of a manger handmade from reusable materials, setting the mood and spirit for the children and families in this dull building.

Rescue 4 Children, distributed toys, chocolates and milk to all the children and wished them all a Merry Christmas.
The mass service in the evening at Mar Yusif Church began at 10pm, the fire was lit, the hymns were sung and the church was very busy as no room was left to stand in the church. Lots of families were scattered around on church grounds listening to the service on amplifiers placed outside.

As rescue 4 children, we feel privileged to have spent Christmas with the Christian community of Iraq, the powerful ceremony highlighted this difficult time for the families who were recently displaced and have been away from their homes. We hope all the displaced families will be able to return to their homes shortly, and for the time being we hope we can provide them with more necessary aid. This is where we need you.

      Kawergosk_Flooded.jpg























RAINS BEGIN     

 

It has been raining at Kawergosk refugee camp all day today.

 

On Wednesday 15th October 2014, 151 families from Kobane arrived. Barzani Charity Foundation cooked food for the families. Around 50-60 families stayed at the camp in the tents that were built over-night. The other 100 or so families left the camp to go and stay with their relatives in Erbil and Sulimanya.

 

Bilal M. Said; “This has been the biggest flood since we came to Kawergosk”

Kawergosk refugee camp, in Erbil, has quickly become mud; 60 new-built temporary tents for the people who arrived from Kobane have been destroyed due to the heavy terrestrial rains. Another 20 or so permanent tents have also been destroyed during the heavy rains.

Kawergosk camp accommodates for over 13,000 refugees and internally displaced persons (IDP), the camp is built right in the middle of a land where hills surround it. There is a total of 2300 tents at Kawergosk camp.

 

 

The rain is not ideal; the pathways with open sewage paths have been flooded releasing toxic waste into the walkways. The entrances to all tents are damaged which is the only entrance route for water and other supplies. The camp is prone to flooding and most tents have already filled with muddy water.

 

 

During our visit in October, we noticed that many of the tents were in fact expired. It sounds odd to say that a piece of fabric has an expiration date, but it is true. Almost all of the tents have been damaged by the summer heat where temperatures exceed 50 degrees. The winter is knocking at the flapping canvas doors and already tents have been welcoming drips of water… this will be a daily struggle for every single person who is trying to cope with life in the camps.

 

The refugees who arrived from Kobane, Syria this week, have been living with other camp residents now. Once again, they have no roof over their heads.

Eid Preparations at Camp in Kurdistan-Iraq

Photos: Rescue4Children/EREM KANSOY

Dara Shakran camp, Khabat, in Erbil, currently accommodates approximately 10,000 refugees. Of this number, over 5,000 are of 0-18 age group.
On the evening of 3rd October, Rescue4Children fieldworkers joined the evening market sales at the camp site, to help families with the final preparations for the Eid Celebrations commencing on Saturday 4th October 2014.

**Market in Kirmanji

Whilst walking around the camp you could find people busy at the shops and stalls, trying to finalise their Eid preparations.  Amongst shoppers were many women choosing colourful dresses from the shops run by the refugees themselves. Parents were found buying shoes, clothing and sweets for their children. Children looked very happy and excited about the celebrations, which will be held the next day.

img_4089.jpg

Syrian refugee, Aetef Yousef who has been living at the camp for over a year now, said; “The older people will not be celebrating, because we lost so much; we lost our homes, our families and loved ones, but we will make sure the children celebrate, everything we do is for them, tomorrow will be special for them, god-willing it will not rain.”

MAR YUSIF CHURCH IN AINKAWA

Church grounds home to Assyrian Christian Families now...

Photos: Rescue4Children/EREM KANSOY

img_0961.jpg

 

This evening we visited Mar Yusif Church in Ainkawa, Erbil, we were taken around by camp manager Mr. Reyan Celalyelda. He told us there are approximately 60,000 Assyrian IDP’s scattered over the region, at this church he tells us there are 225 families who are living in the tents provided by UNICEF and UNHCR. There are approximately 216 registered children between the ages of 0-12. Mr. Reyan explained that the church has been trying to accommodate for the large numbers by renting rooms and hotels, they have been placing three families into one room sometimes. Most of the aid received has been from France and Italy.

Mr. Thabet, was working for an US company as a security officer. On 8th August, as he was leaving the mass ceremony at church in Qaraqosh, Mosul, Thabet was warned by his brother Gassan to quickly prepare his family to leave their homes, and to move towards Erbil. Gassan had urged his brother to believe him that he had seen the severe attacks and that they had no other chance but the leave everything behind and to seek refuge in a safer place. Mr. Thabet arrived in Ankawa two months ago; they were the first four families who had approached entry at the Mar Yusif church. At first the churches had to wait for the orders to allow entry of the IDP’s into the churches. It took two weeks for the Assyrian internally displaced to settle into the churches. , There is 26 people in Thabets family, 16 live at Mar Yusif Church grounds, the other 10 members including his family and his elderly parents have rented a 100 meter-square room closeby. Thabet describes the difficulties they have because they live outside the church grounds, he says; "we are not given any aid, no food, no clothes, and our children cannot register for school as we are not deemed as IDP’s".

img_0968.jpg

Mr. Gassam, tells us that, he is not worried about food anymore, he is worried about the fast approaching winter, and he points to the sky showing us the rain that is falling, then he says; we have no shelter, we have lost our homes.

img_4019.jpg

Mrs. Lubna, an Assyrian Christian tells us she is worried about her children, “They are supposed to start school soon, we have registered them but we have no news of when they will start. The language will be difficult for them, they will not be learning in their own languge. This is all leading us to lose faith. We were told that we will fight together or die together, we want to know when we can go back home.”

ankawa8.jpg       ankawa2.jpg

Mr. Hayhtham Dawud, expressed his worry for his sister who is pregnant, he said; “it is too expensive to take her to hospital, and we have no money, we are not prepared for the babies’ arrival.” Mrs. Salwa Imad, is expecting her baby this month, Rescue4children gifted her a newborn baby pack.

We have been working thoroughly and for endless hours each day this month to maintain and to follow through a flawless system whilst packing and securing our donation boxes.

We began the September campaign on 30th August 2014: HERE , since then we have been recieving many donations, and we feel privileged to know that so many of you have been very fragile about the current situation in the conflict zones as well as the affection you feel towards those who have fled and now live in poor conditions. HERE we added a short update on how the campaign was going.

On Monday 22nd September 2014, we received our boxes. Our distribution partner; Barzani Charity Foundation have now identified those families in each camp we operate in, to recieve the aid directly. We have already targetted to aid; 400 pregnant women and newborn mothers in Qushtapa Camp in Erbil, KR-Iraq.

 

SCANNING, ITEMISING, TRANSLATED LABELLING
We scanned and weighed every donated item, each unique SKU code was enterred onto our database. We also translated instructions on medication and formula milks, the specified items were translated in Kirmanji and Arabic. Products such as vitamins, pain relief tablets, nappy rash creams, teething gels and formula milks were all given labels to ensure appropriate use.

Identifying the products that will need translating into Kirmanji and Arabic. It is very important to differ between instructions for infants and children as dosage varies.

Scanning products, then weighing them and entering into our database. Packing boxes is made easier and we are able to work out the weight of each box.

Shams (53) is originally from a town called Sbeneh in Damascus she and her family travelled to Quamishli when the war in Syria began in 2012.

She has 2 sons, 1 daughter and 10 grandchildren. Shams travelled to KR-Iraq with her children and grandchildren 10 months ago in August 2013 to seek refuge at Dara Shakran Camp in Iraq. She explains how the war had affected the family when living in Damascus, “The planes would drop bombs, there would be tanks everywhere and weapons all over the place, it was really unsafe, we had to move to Qamishli which was at the time a safer part of Syria”.

She explained that when the border between Iraq and Syria had been lifted they decided to leave Syria for good, and made their final move from Qamishli to KR-Iraq, Erbil via walking across the river despite the harsh and difficult conditions.

Mohammed Yousef (23) moved to Dara Shakran camp near Ankawa, KR-Iraq, with his parents and his elder brother about 8 months ago in October 2013. He was a student at high school when living in Syria, but has since been out of school as the camp does not have a high school. He has been working with an international organisation ACTED (Agency for Technical Co-operation and Development) since they moved to the camp. Mohammed has been adapting to life at the refugee camp and he tells us of the difficulties those with disabilities and special needs face when trying to adapt to camp life.

{gallery}Disabilityatdarashakran{/gallery}

Mohammed said, ‘It is important to help prioritise vulnerable persons with disabilities so as to enable them to access assistance and services but also to optimise their functional independence too, without reducing the protection risks.”  There is a gap for expertise teams at the camp, who could help identify the needs of the people with disabilities, in order to help ensure them access to relief services and assistance for them.

As the conflict in Syria approaches another sombre milestone, more than twice as many children are now affected compared to 12 months ago, says a new report by UNICEF published today. Particularly hard hit are up to a million children who are trapped in areas of Syria that are under siege or that are hard to reach with humanitarian assistance due to continued violence.

Children's rights in Syria are being violated every day! They are losing their childhoods, their dreams and their right to an education. Help us to Restore Peace to Syria's Children Through Play...


9.3 million people in Syria are in need of humanitarian assistance, and more than 2.8 million people have fled to the neighbouring countries. 6.5 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Syria.

5.5 million Syrian children have been affected by a brutal, four-year conflict. 2.8 million children are no longer in school and more than 1 million are living as refugees in neighbouring countries. For these children, what's at stake isn't politics. It's their future. Four years away from the their homes, schools and communities means their chance at building a future may soon be lost.

Children are the first victims during war. Children are especially vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and trafficking during emergencies and armed conflicts.

Shakespeare's tragedies Hamlet and King Lear have endured through the ages, thanks to the playwright's ability to express the complexities of the human condition. Now, a performance of excerpts from the two tragedies by Syrian refugee children is drawing attention to their situation.

For the children whose families have fled the Syrian civil war for refugee camps in Jordan, they know only too well that "When sorrows come, they come not single spies but in battalions!"

Now they have the chance to perform these timeless phrases from Hamlet during a dual performance of 'Hamlet' and 'King Lear' in the Jordanian capital Amman. Here, the setting of the city's Roman Amphitheatre adds a sense of occasion to the performance.
