Background and Methodology

Newroz is a large formal camp in Al-Hasakeh governorate which at the time of data collection was managed and administrated by a non-governmental organisation (NGO).
This profile provides an overview of humanitarian conditions in Newroz camp. Primary data was collected through a key informant interview (KII) with camp management on the 29 September 2021. Due to COVID-19 visiting the camp was not possible, hence household interviews were not conducted. Therefore, findings presented in this factsheet are not statistically representative.
In recent months Newroz camp has seen a large influx of people partly due to an increase in clashes in Tal Tamer sub-district. The camp population has more than doubled since the most recent REACH camp profiling exercise conducted in March 2021.
