Distribution of winterization items in Sinjar Mountains

On December 2015 and January 2016, JEN conducted distribution of winterization items in Sinjar Mountains where JEN works.

The neighbourhood of it was surrounded by an armed group between August 2014 and December 2014. During the last five months, many people from the neighbourhood evacuated to the mountainous camp. After one year of the liberation, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are still facing hard living conditions especially during freezing cold winter.

JEN planned to conduct a distribution of winterization kit to support them. Also, we organized a focal group discussion with the community to clarify their situation and needs, and also, household assessment to create database of household numbers.
As a result, JEN provided items to reinforce tents, blankets, winter clothes and carpets.






The first distribution was blankets and children’s clothes. There were many people in the distribution, and so it made slightly difficult to do the well-ordered distribution. This is because such occasion did not take place for long time in the community. Our operation became more organized and completed smoothly after the first distribution.

JEN is willing to support the people, however, the distribution is very small part of the solution for their entire problem.

【JEN is now accepting donations. Your help would be very much appreciated.
