Nearly 130,000 people have left Eastern Ghouta following weeks of fighting. Of these, 89,632 went to eight collective shelters in Rural Damascus [though more than a third already left these shelters]. The UN and partners are responding to the mounting humanitarian needs of those displaced with food, shelter, health and other assistance and protection services.
As of April 5, 2018, number of IDPs hosted in shelters reduced by an overall 49% (from 89,632 IDPs to 45,477 IDPs). More than 50% decrease in number of IDPs is observed in Adra Electricity Complex, Nashabye, Najha, Akram Abu Al Naser and Fayhaa Al Sham.
