In troduction

The number of refugees in Turkey has reached over 3.7 million, making Turkey the country in the world with the highest number of refugees. About 94% of Syrian refugees in Turkey remain outside of camp settings with limited, but growing access to basic services. The EU has contracted 45 humanitarian projects with 19 humanitarian organisations, which are working in close cooperation with Turkish partner organisations to provide support to the most vulnerable refugees.

What are the needs?

Over 3.7 million registered refugees live in Turkey; they include Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans, Iranians, and Somalis among others. Out of these, almost 230 000 people are hosted in 21 camps run by the Turkish authorities, where refugees have access to shelter, health, education, food and social activities.
Most Syrian refugees as well as many refugees from other nationalities live outside the camps, under very challenging circumstances with depleted resources. Registered refugees have access to public services, including education and healthcare. However, for many refugees, access to these basic facilities is often difficult for various reasons, including problems in registering with local authorities and the language barrier.
