Who is Hera For?
HERA is for pregnant Syrian women and Syrian children under the age of 2 who live in Turkey under temporary protection.
The Aim of the Project
HERA aims to increase the rate of prenatal care and childhood vaccinations among Syrian refugees in Turkey under temporary protection. HERA’s goal is to prevent health problems for refugees and thereby decrease deaths. HERA now serves 300 women between the age of 20 to 49. Through collaboration with NGOs and refugee clinics, we predict that awareness of HERA will increase that we will reach 1000 refugee women. We anticipate that 2000 people in Syrian refugee population will know about HERA, considering Syrian refugees’ effective use of social media, strong social connections, collaboration with NGOs, and announcements by HERA’s social media accounts.
