Within the framework of the child protection project in partnership with UNICEF, the Child Protection committee of Balool informal tented settlement(ITS) near Mashghara implemented a community initiative in June to address an important child protection risk within their community: The absence of first aid and health services near their ITS.

They decided to transform one of the tents into a First Aid tent equipped with the necessary first aid material to be able to assist children, women, and men who face minor injuries or other health complications within the ITS. The child protection Committee along with other community members received adequate first aid training and inaugurated the opening of the first aid tent.
