First responders in Syria have stated that there is an acute need for: search and rescue volunteers, fuel, winterization items, and water supplies. A preliminary needs list for NFIs, food, WASH supplies, medicines, and medical items was also published by the Turkish authorities and can be found on the government website and in IMPACCT working group guidance. This needs list is actively informing Airlink’s response priorities.
