Syrian refugees in Turkey

Turkey initially requested humanitarian assistance for Syrian refugees in Turkey through EADRCC on 13 April 2012 and the final report for this operation was published on 17 December 2013. Since then, the number of Syrian refugees in 22 temporary protection centres has reached up to 220.000 people, while the number of Syrians outside these centres estimated to be around 800.000 people.

In light of this background, Turkey decided to resubmit an international call for humanitarian assistance.  EADRCC has received the request for assistance from Turkey on 30 June 2014.
