Al-Hawaij camp in Deir Ezzor lacks detergents and sterilizers

The residents of Al-Hawaij camp in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor said that the camp's lack of detergents and sterile medical materials makes it difficult for them to take the necessary measures to prevent the Corona virus.

Al-Hawaij camp in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor is one of the random camps, established in 2018, and it includes about 40 families, or about 200 people from the people of the areas and rural areas of Deir Ezzor.

In light of the panic that overshadowed all countries of the world from the emerging threat of the Corona virus, in March 23, 2020, the Autonomous Administration imposed a curfew to confront the pandemic.

While the world is taking precautionary measures to prevent the virus, Al-Hawaij camp suffers from a lack of water and medical care that has decreased in the recent period.

The residents of Al-Hawaij camp have abided by the curfew, but the conditions of the camp- due to lack of water and medical care- mainly raise their concerns.

Ahmed Al-Hadi, one of the camp's displaced, said: "The camp needs medical assistance, such as detergents, sterilizers and drinking water, in order to prevent bacterial and viral diseases."

In turn, the displaced Hassan Al-Salem said, "We appeal to and ask the councils and organizations to look at the situation of the camp and give a hand, because most of the people were earning their livelihood daily, and now they are jobless."

Al-Salem indicated that they suffer from a shortage of drinking water, detergents and sterilizers in order to prevent diseases.

At the end of his speech, Al-Salem called on humanitarian organizations to visit the camp and see their conditions, and to provide them with medical assistance, which would provide some protection from the threat of the Corona virus.
