[IOM ROK] Webinar on Humanitarian Situation Update in Northwest Syria
Mar 8, 2024  |  Read: 214

Since 2021, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Mission in the Republic of Korea (ROK) has been organizing the Humanitarian Assistance Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series. These webinars aim to provide opportunities for individuals to enhance their understanding of humanitarian assistance by introducing various fields.

The 11th webinar, scheduled for March 26th, will focus on the topic of "Humanitarian Situation Update in Northwest Syria" in coordination with World Vision Korea.

February 2024 marks one year since the deadly earthquakes hit Türkiye and Syria. While the situation in Türkiye was widely reported and attracted huge public attention in ROK, little has been known about the humanitarian struggles in northwest Syria.

In this webinar, we would like to highlight the humanitarian situation and response by IOM and World Vision in northwest Syria, which is undergoing a decade-long conflict compounded by the impact of the 2023 earthquakes as well as ongoing food shortages with field experts from both organizations.
