In situations of violence, the majority of interventions are taken by people at risk themselves, usually with the help of their relatives, friends and communities. A common behavior is fleeing from the place of danger if people manage to do so, or avoid the risk by refraining from going to schools or markets, and in some cases the action taken by some people at risk and their families may cause more harm, such as early marriages to mitigate the financial burden and child labor. In these cases, alternatives must be provided to achieve relative security for these people. In these cases, Ghiras Al-Nahda provide support to improve living conditions (food, shelter, safety equipment for shelters, financial support either monthly or one-time) to affected families who lost their family supporter/ head of family either during the conflict or they were detained or injured, in order to help them meet their basic needs without the need to send their children to work or marry early, or resort to any other methods that cause harm to some vulnerable groups in order to meet the financial needs.
