There is an unfolding humanitarian crisis in Al-Hol, Al-Hasakah Governorate, North-East Syria.  Since 04 December 2018, approximately 53,400 people, mainly women and children fleeing hostilities in rural areas of neighboring Deir-ez-Zor, have arrived in Al-Hol camp.

 

The conditions within Al-Hol camp are over-crowded, unhabitable and threaten human dignity and life. People have no shelter within the camp and have to sleep on the ground during harsh weather conditions such as rain and extreme low temperatures. Most families spend days walking to the camp and stay without food until they reach the camp.
