Pre-paid debit cards for refugees in Turkey
Description: Four hundred and six-five thousand Syrians are reported to have been killed or missing in Syria's six-year civil war. Nearly one-quarter of these are presumed to be civilians. There are 5.5 million Syrian refugees in the world and 3.1 million are registered in Turkey. The Emergency Social Safety Net programme is an EU cash-based programme which now supports nearly one million of the most vulnerable refugees in Turkey. Launched in autumn 2016, it is the biggest humanitarian aid project the EU has ever funded. The cash assistance received by refugees goes towards covering the basic needs of living: rent, food, and bills. The programme aims to reach 1.3 million refugees by the end of 2017. Financed by the EU's Humanitarian Aid Operations department, it is implemented by the World Food Programme (WFP), hand in hand with the Turkish Red Crescent and the government of Turkey.

Turkey: EU-funded training enables Syrian medical personnel to contribute to their community
Description: Access to health care is one of the major concerns of the over 3.4 million refugees in Turkey. While emergency hospital treatment in Turkey is free of charge, many Syrian and refugees are reluctant or unable to use these facilities due to language and cultural barriers. Many local health facilities are also struggling to cope with the influx of refugee patients. The EU and other donors are supporting the Turkish administration in their efforts to address this issue by setting up migrant health centres all over the country. Among the refugees, some Syrian health professionals have also been able to find employment in these health centers; this is much appreciated by the refugees who feel more comfortable being treated by Arab speaking doctors and nurses. The EU has also promoted the employment of Syrian medical personnel through a training program carried by the World Health Organisation (WHO). This training allows Syrian doctors and other medical professionals amongst the refugee and migrant population to understand the rules and regulations governing the medical profession in Turkey and allows them to practice medicine inside the Turkish health facilities. With a grant of €12 million from the EU Facility for Refugees in Turkey, WHO has already trained over one thousand Syrian doctors, nurses and translators, providing a vital service to the refugee community.

12 days locked in the dark, then hope I UNICEF
Description: “I have a lot of things in my heart and they are bad and good, but a lot of bad.” 11-year-old Dounia from Afghanistan had to escape the conflict with her family and their journey was harrowing. Smugglers in Turkey kept her family locked in the dark for 12 days. “Nobody can say something to them, if they [do] say, they kill them.” Dounia feared that the smugglers would just take their money without helping them. After two lost years, she now lives safely in Greece with her family, and she’s back at school learning Greek and English. “We want to be safe like Europe people. Why they are safe, why? Why we are not safe?” Dounia still wonders. If you believe #AChildIsAChild, share this video to stand with refugee and migrant children.
