Syria 2023 - Parenting in Crisis
Parents and caregivers are heroes: Protecting our children in a crisis
To provide evidence-based parenting tips to families impacted by the recent earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, Parenting for Lifelong Health at the University of Oxford have co-developed with colleagues from UNODC, Manchester University, Uskudar University, WHO, and ECDAN and with support and input from colleagues at UNICEF and UNHCR. They are based on the WHO-UNICEF PLH programs which have been tested in 15 RCTs and have also been used in Ukraine and Pakistan.
The tips are available in [Turkish and English]/[Arabic and English] and offer practical ways for parents to help themselves and their children cope in the current crisis. All tips can be downloaded in PDF format and are open source to allow sharing. This website will be updated as more resources become available.
