Sebastiano Nino Fezza and @uxilia launched an initiative to support Atma children. Atma was a field of olive trees where people escaping from Idlib had found shelter. Today 14.000 refugees are living there, 3.600 are children and among them 900 newborns. There’s no presence of international associations, everything is based on volunteering and on spontaneous and uneven donations. 

Tents too come from donations, there’s not a real mobile kitchen but just a small tent where only one warm meal per day can be provided. There’s no hospital, but only an infirmary in a tent. There’s no electricity nor running water, so that each family must fill their own tank from the tank trucks which are brought there. There are 4 toilet facilities to serve the whole camp. Children suffer because of the inadequate hygienic conditions: cases of scabies, lice and intestinal infections have been reported. 

Atma stands in the inner part of Syria: it should have been a “transit camp”, but it has actually grown bigger and it keeps growing. At first, the refugees’ journey stopped in this camp just until someone found them another place to stay, beyond the border. Nowadays, also considering the huge number of refugees, there’s an attempt to keep their entries and their following.
