In Syria, more than 2.5 million people are at risk and in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Schools have closed, health centers have shut down and violence has forced tens of thousands of Syrians to flee their homes and seek shelter in neighbouring countries.
Over 200,000 Syrians—50 percent of them children and young people—have registered as refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. Actual numbers of Syrians displaced from Syria is believed to be significantly higher.
Under the current Regional Response Plan, UNICEF needs an additional $26.9 million. However, the figures are under constant revision due to the worsening situation. In Jordan alone, as part of a broader Government/UN appeal issued this week, UNICEF is seeking $54 million to meet the urgent needs of Syrian children and women crossing the border as refugees.
UNICEF is rapidly increasing its response to the situation, providing critical life-saving essentials like safe water, vaccines, child protection services and educational support to the most vulnerable. Despite the efforts, a lot more still needs to be done.
The humanitarian organisation is working to integrate children into public schools ensuring children are granted free access, and providing vulnerable children with school bags, uniforms and other supplies.
UNICEF has responded to the urgent protection needs of children by expanding the range of child-friendly spaces offering safe recreation, remedial education and life-skills training.
In areas of transit and in the host communities where refugees are concentrated, UNICEF is providing critical supplies of water, sanitation, and hygiene services. UNICEF is extremely grateful for contributions received from donors. However, it has received less than half of the $54 million dollars urgently needed to assist children caught in the Syrian refugee crisis.
