In 2023, the crises in Syria entered its twelfth year, with only a growing number of concerns for the future. By this time, about 14 millions Syrians have been forced to flee, with over 6 million remaining in the country. The North West region, including Northern Aleppo and Idlib, is the site where most IDPs reside, across hundreds of both planned and informal camp settlements.

Better Shelter provided IOM, along with partners from France, Germany and the United States, and implementing partner Ataa Relief, with 3,569 Relief Housing Units (RHUs). The RHUs were built as temporary shelters for displaced families. Many families include young children, at an age younger than the war itself.
