El 86% de las personas refugiadas provenientes de Siria vive por debajo de la línea jordana de la pobreza y cada vez les cuesta más sobrevivir de forma independiente en el país vecino. En total, hay unas 211.000 personas de origen sirio que viven fuera de los campos de refugiados y están en una situación de vulnerabilidad extrema. Además,el 34% de las familias refugiadas están ahora encabezadas por mujeres, pues son ellas y sus hijos las que sacan adelante la familia, mientras que los hombres tienen que quedarse en casa, y esa situación de presión está dando lugar al aumento de la violencia contra las mujeres.
We provide medical and psychosocial care for Syrian refugees and give workshops on the prevention of domestic violence, family planning and the consequences of early and forced marriages which truncate the lives of many girls.
We also provide these women and their families with baskets of food, hygiene products and basic necessities to help their plight.
The dignity and integrity of persons is as valid goal of humanitarian work to ensure their physical safety and solve their material needs. People have the right to be protected, while the authorities and individuals have legal obligations to respect the law and ensure the protection and exercise of their rights.
We work to ensure the safety, dignity and humanitarian assistance to the population affected by the humanitarian crisis, whether it be natural and man-made.
In the past two decades more than 200 million people have been affected by disasters leading to, on average, hundreds of humanitarian crises each year. This crisis carries grave consequences for the survival, dignity, and ways of life for the people affected who find themselves in a vulnerable situation. This merits the recognition of the importance of risk reduction and increased response means, as disasters and in particular the management and reduction of risk continues to pose a challenge globally.
We work to contribute to the prevention and / or reduction of risk of disasters in regions where disasters are cyclical, increasingly harmful and more recurrent.
The Solidarity Alliance believes that humanitarian action must be linked to development programs in the longer term in order to create synergies and provide a sustainable response to crisis situations which will serve as a pillar for development in the future. This response should also strengthen the resilience of the most vulnerable communities to recurrent crises affecting basic needs such as food.
We work so that the most vulnerable populations can cope with crisis in the best conditions guaranteeing their basic rights.
Solidarity Alliance for Humanitarian Action works with the support of institutions such as the European Commission (ECHO), AECID or SDC.Work in Humanitarian Action also requires awareness-raising and political advocacy, to achieve quality humanitarian action and to increase political commitment and international investment in disaster prevention and conflict, incorporating a gender perspective.
Solidarity Alliance believes humanitarian action is one way to create active and involved citizenship through the incorporation of humanitarian volunteering actions and ongoing projects where your contribution can be an added value. For this reason, we work in collaboration with the European Union project EU Aid Volunteers Initiative.
There are areas where disasters are cyclical, and are becoming more damaging and more recurrent.
