ATAA Association for Humanitarian Relief is a non-profit humanitarian organization registered in Türkiye. It was established in 2013 to provide relief for displaced populations who lack access to basic necessities.

In 2020, ATAA implemented 182 Better Shelter Relief Housing Units (RHUs) in the reception and IDP camp in Jarablus to shelter displaced Syrian families. The RHUs are largely used as temporary family shelters. ATAA estimated that 450 children living in the camp will have access to education from the learning centres built from RHUs.
