Existing local tensions intersect to
risk further harm to survivors
This region is already home to a large population of vulnerable individuals, as a result of more than a decade of conflict. Although Good Neighbors Canada and community partners have united to provided support to families in Türkiye and Syria, the civil unrest is contributing to a challenging environment for providing relief. A lack of available food, water, and vital resources is causing tension among local people, triggering violence and further harm.
