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.

Only scaled-up donor support can spare a generation the impact of Syrian conflict
AMMAN, Jordan, 2 February 2016 – The future of a generation of Syrian children and youth is in jeopardy unless donors meeting in London this week prioritise the funding needed to get them back to school, say aid agencies leading the response to the brutal conflict ravaging the country.
Currently, the humanitarian response plans and appeals for 2016 are seeking over $19.8 billion to meet the needs of 89.4 million people across 37 countries. The figures may increase in the course of 2016. As of 29 January, $50 million has been received for the appeals.
In January 2015, the UN-coordinated inter-agency appeals required $16.4 billion to meet the needs of 57.5 million people across 22 countries.
The year ended with requirements at $19.9 billion, an increase of $3.5 billion, to meet the needs of 82 million people in 38 countries.
Approximately 12,733 people have been displaced in Lattakia since mid-November.
Since 24 January, approximately 1,200 of these people have fled from Yamadiya towards Jisr al-Shagour and Kharbat al-Joz in Idleb governorate while hundreds of people crossing into Turkey on a daily basis.
Amidst intensified fighting, protection of civilians remains the major concern and NGO partners are suspending humanitarian activities including operation of hospitals.
