Thank you, Chairman McGovern and Chairman Wolf, for holding this important hearing on humanitarian assistance for those affected by violence in Iraq and for your personal leadership and support for your humanitarian efforts. Given the close relationship between events in Iraq and Syria, I will also address our humanitarian response to the crisis in Syria.
The war in Syria continues to rage as it enters its fourth year with no end in sight. The UNHCR estimates that 6.5 million Syrians are displaced within Syria.
Another 3 million Syrian refugees have crossed into neighbouring countries. ACT Alliance members in the region coordinated the humanitarian response within the ACT Jordan/Syria/Lebanon Forum (JSL).

Au milieu d'un camp misérable dans l'est du Liban, un tableau vert et des casiers multicolores ont été installés sous une tente pour offrir l'apparence d'une école normale à de petits réfugiés syriens.
Située dans la région pittoresque de Qaraoun, cette école de fortune fait partie des 47 centres éducatifs supervisés par l'ONG International Rescue Comittee (IRC) au Liban, où se sont réfugiés 1,1 million de Syriens ayant fui la guerre.
UNICEF 2015 Plan Highlights
• The WASH programme will continue the transition from first-phase emergency services to more sustainable, and costeffective systems, and reinforcing WASH services in areas impacted by refugee influx.
• Health programmes will increase access to health care for refugee and impacted host population, including strengthening routine immunization and campaigns especially for polio which continues to threaten the region.
