The Jordan Humanitarian Fund (JHF) mobilizes and channels resources to humanitarian partners to respond to urgent needs for Syrian refugees in Jordan, as well as vulnerable Jordanians affected by the Syrian crisis. The fund operates within the frame of the Jordan Response Plan and the UNSC resolutions 2165, 2191 and 2258.
To date the Fund has allocated US $11.86 Million to a total of 38 projects in host communities and camps, of which seven projects support the needs of vulnerable Syrians in Southern Syria.
Intensified fighting between the Government of Syria (GoS) and its allies and Non-State Armed Opposition Groups (NSAG) in Aleppo governorate cause displacements of tens of thousands of people
Humanitarian assistance affected by fighting and border closures; aid organisations are working to respond to the thousands of internally displaced and in need. According to initial assessments up to 80 percent of the displaced are women and children
(New York, 8 February 2016) I am gravely concerned by reports that over 30,000 civilians have been displaced from Aleppo city and other areas in northern Syria over the past week, by heavy clashes and aerial bombardment by the Government of Syria, allied forces and armed groups. About 80 per cent of them are estimated to be women and children. We have reports that civilians have been killed and injured, and that civilian infrastructure, including at least two hospitals, has been hit.

Cross-border Humanitarian Assistance Overview
In the past year, the number of people in need in Iraq has doubled. The humanitarian disaster touches nearly one-third of the population – 10 million people; a fiscal collapse has resulted in widespread unemployment and impoverishment; and insecurity and violence are putting millions of Iraqis at direct risk. The humanitarian community is appealing for US$861 million in 2016 to provide some form of humanitarian assistance to 7.3 million people. With the ongoing conflict, the humanitarian crisis in Iraq is likely to deteriorate in the year ahead.
As Government of Syria (GoS) forces advance north of Aleppo city, and airstrikes pummel its northern districts, thousands are fleeing. Large crowds have gathered at the Bab al Salam border crossing seeking safety inTurkey.
Supply routes and humanitarian access from the north to eastern Aleppo city and surrounding area are cut off.
Thank you Rouba (Mhaissen); we are listening carefully to you.
Excellencies, colleagues, ladies and gentlemen,
Thank you to the Governments of the United Kingdom, Kuwait, Germany and Norway for co-hosting this important event with the United Nations.
