Hygiene promotion campaign aims to improve health of thousands of displaced children and families in Tartous shelters

by David Youngmeyer.

With support from European Commission – Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection (ECHO) UNICEF has kicked off a campaign to reach thousands of displaced children and parents in Tartous with hygiene promotion messages. The campaign is to be rolled out at 21 shelters in Tartous, a coastal city in western Syria, which accommodate around 1,300 families who fled areas of conflict.

The first sessions, run in partnership with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, were held last week at a shelter on the outskirts of Tartous. Separate sessions for children and women included the promotion of practical hygiene practices such as hand-washing and the covering food, along with the disease cycle.

UNICEF’s summer hygiene campaign in Syria has reached more than 48,000 people to date in the most affected areas in Aleppo, Damascus, Rural Damascus, Hama, Homs, Lattakia, and Tartous.
