In a statement to journalists, Beyani said that the goal of the visit is to evaluate the requirements and needs of displaced people, their living conditions, and available resources in order to figure out how to provide as much aid to them as possible.

He noted that most of the needs of the residents in these centers are being provided, but some other centers may require aid that isn’t being supplied.

In a statement to SANA, director of the Social Affairs Directorate in Damascus Countryside Fatima Rashid said that there are 242 temporary housing centers in the province in addition to 132 government-run centers, asserting that the Directorate is working hard to provide all essential, medical, psychological, and social services to the families staying in them.

She added that the Directorate is working with civil and official sides to provide food baskets every 45 days and provide the requirements of people with special needs such as wheelchairs and similar equipment.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
