This OCHA-funded project strengthened the health of conflict-affected IDPs and host communities through
lifesaving and life-sustaining primary health care services and psychosocial support in Jinderes region of Afrin
Approximately 21,177 individuals directly benefited from the project. During a significant part of the project,
DDD was the only MHPSS provider for vulnerable people in Jinderes. Thanks to the project, DDD was able to
absorb patients from two other MHPSS providers in the region that were forced to close in the spring of 2020.
The project also played a critical role in responding to the needs of new IDPs that arrived in the region.
