10000 people in Sejju camp live the bitterness of displacement despite the improved services in areas controlled by the Turkish-backed factions north of Aleppo

Residents of the camps share suffering and pain. They do not have a warmth in winter, nor they can bear the summer sun, and the worsening of situation is not confined to the areas that are controlled by Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, as in “Sejju” camp, which is located in areas controlled by the Turkish-backed factions, where the suffering of the displaced people is mixed with the insecurity in these areas, also, the Turkish-backed factions control the lives of the helpless population.

With the start of winter, suffering of the displaced people in this camp located north of Azaz city increases, it is 2 km away of the Syrian-Turkish border, the camp is supervised by a civilian administration with staff of AFAD Organization, which oversees its affairs, and IHH Organization.

The camp is one of the largest camps, with an area of about 8 hectares, it was established by the Turkish humanitarian organization IHH, and this camp is considered to be a place for the displaced people of Aleppo city and its countryside, with a population of about 10000 people spread over caravans “isolated wooden rooms”, in addition, there are special sections for widows and wives of the martyrs, the camp is somewhat serviced compared to other nearby camps, and “al-Ihsan” and “al-Ward Vision” organizations oversee the provision of sanitation and water services in the camp.

In terms of education, the Directorate of Education for the Camps opened a school that includes more than 1000 students, and a kindergarten with 100 students, in addition, there are Islamic Sharia institutes that help reduce illiteracy, despite reaching dangerous levels.

And moving to the medical and health care section, the organizations established a clinic with multiple departments, like a special ward for children’s incubators and eye clinics, as well as for “ear-nose-throat” clinics, and women’s clinic and internal diseases.

The “Free Police” in Aleppo also opened a section in the camp for them, as well as in Shmarekh camp, al-Salama town, Sejju, and al-Hilal camp.

It is worth mentioning that the Syrian camps are witnessing various crises and their population are increasing, after the military operation launched by the regime forces on the countryside of Idlib and Hama, while these relatively safe areas have become a destination for all residents of the provinces which their people have been displaced in recent years, which became now a destination for the people of Idlib.
