Whom is Hera For?

Whom is Hera For?

HERA is for Syrian pregnant women and children under the age of 2 who are in Turkey under the temporary protection.

The Aim of the Project

Hera Project aims to have an increase on vaccination of children and prenatal care among Syrian women in Turkey under the temporary protection, prevent the possible health problems of the infant and the mother and therefore decrease the death rates. Initially, we aim to reach 300 women between the age of 20 to 49. Through the collaborations with NGOs and the refugee clinics, we predict that the awareness about the issue will be increased and our target population will expand to include 1000 refugee women. We plan that 2000 people from the Syrian refugee population will have a knowledge about Hera, considering Syrian refugees’ effective use of social media, strong connections in the refugees, collaborations with NGOs, and the announcements from project’s social media accounts.
