5 Participants from Shahed took part of the project in Hatay – Turkey between the 20th of July and the 25th of July.
According to the UN Refugee Organization; the largest refugee movement in history has
taken place in the last 8 years. In 2018, more than 13 million children (under 18 years)
were accepted as legal refugees. According to the 2018 statistics, there are
more than 3.5 million of Syrian refugees in Turkey. Only one-tenth of these people live in
the camps. In addition, 8.2 million people were affected by the refugees. 85% of the
refugees live outside the camps. The main objective of some asylum seekers is to use
Turkey as a bridge to reach the European countries. This makes the program countries
relevant. The insufficient nutrition status and low living conditions of the migrant children
in the crowded camps require psychological support. Considering these facts, the basis
of our project is that identifying the needs of migrant / refugee children, incorporating
them into social life and making activities for their socialization with their peer.
At the end of our project we have accomplished;
-Having communication with refugees and listen to their problems,
-Realize different traditions of different cultures,
– Intertwine with different cultures,
-Be witnessed the living conditions of refugees.
