Dünya Doktorları Derneği (DDD), in partnership with UOSSM, reached a total of 28,773 direct beneficiaries through this project funded by DG ECHO. A total of 25,143 refugees benefited from the MHPSS centres in Hatay, Istanbul, and Izmir, and a total of 6,050 (Syrian) seasonal agricultural workers received PHC services through mobile medical units in the rural areas of Izmir and Manisa.
In addition, the Project effectively responded to the urgent needs arising from the earthquakes in Elazığ and Izmir and the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, providing phycological first aid, PSS and awareness raising activities on COVID-19, in coordination with local authorities.
Despite this challenging atmosphere, the project activities could be smoothly handed over to the state authorities by the end of the project.
