Entry Description

Atmeh Refugee Camp has 14,000 refugees during the day and 4,000 at night. 10,000 go back to their homes at night because it is relatively safe. During the day is when most of the bombing takes place. The camp is divided into 5 sections. Each has a leader who distributes food and supplies. Bab al Hawa Refugee Camp is in Syria just a short distance from the Syrian-Turkish border in Idlib Province. The Free Syrian Army set up the camp and there are several NGOs that serve many different functions and help the needs of the displaced.
