Valerie Amos (OCHA) on the humanitarian crisis in Syria - Security Council, 6949th meeting
Valerie Amos said that the parties in Syria have become increasingly entrenched, while the needs on the ground are growing rapidly. There are now 6.8 million people in need, 4.25 million people internally displaced and 1.3 million who have sought refuge in neighbouring countries. She noted the UN’s work on behalf of the Syrians, including the UN Relief and Works Agency’s aid to some 400,000 Palestinians, many of whom face future displacement. She added that about half of the $1.5 billion required for Syria’s humanitarian needs until June has been received, with the recent allocation of the $300m pledged by the Kuwaiti Government in January. Ms. Amos appealed to the Security Council to act, saying that the Syrian people and humanitarian workers are losing hope.
