Refugees face similar challenges across Syria’s neighbouring countries
Refugees face similar challenges across Syria’s neighbouring countries, a new report by a coalition of 28 NGOs has found, warning that long-term efforts are still needed by the international community and host governments.
ANKARA, Jan 19 (KUNA) -- Some 18 trucks laden with humanitarian aid crossed into Syria from the southern Turkish province of Hatay, the Kuwaiti Society for Relief announced on Thursday. Director General of Kuwaiti Society for Relief Abdulaziz Al-Obaid told KUNA that the trucks carried basic necessities including food baskets, heaters and mattresses for needy Syrian families.
Moreover, he said that the aid is part of Kuwait's efforts to mitigate the misery the Syrian people are mired in, as he thanked all those involved in such benevolent deeds.
Turkey hosts highest number of child refugees in the world. Education is their only lifeline
NEW YORK/GAZIANTEP, Turkey, 19 January 2017 – Nearly half a million Syrian refugee children are currently enrolled in schools across Turkey. But despite a more than 50 per cent increase in enrolment since last June, over 40 per cent of children of school-going age – or 380,000 child refugees – are still missing out on an education, UNICEF said today.
“La Résolution 46/182 des Nations Unies reste aussi pertinente et fondamentale aujourd’hui qu’en décembre 1991 et les principes d’humanité, de neutralité, indépendance et d’impartialité qu’elle contient continuent de guider une assistance humanitaire stratégique, coordonnée et efficace aux personnes qui en ont besoin”
Turkey - In 2016 IOM Turkey’s refugee resettlement program moved 21,120 refugees from Turkey to new homes abroad. This was double the previous year’s total and the largest number of refugees ever resettled by IOM Turkey in a single year.
The top three destination countries were the United States (nearly 8,500), Canada (over 7,000) and European countries (approximately 4,800). Women and children accounted for 73 percent of the refugees resettled.
In September 2016, the European Union signed a ground-breaking deal to help more than 1 million of the most vulnerable refugees in Turkey. The deal will see the EU’s humanitarian aid department, working hand-in-hand with the United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP), the Turkish Red Crescent (TRC) and the Government of Turkey to implement the most ambitious humanitarian aid programme in EU history. After a month of piloting the scheme in Ankara, the national launch took place in the winter of 2016.
4 859 908 registered Syrian refugees (including 29 000 registered in North African countries).
Estimated 110 000 Palestine refugees from Syria in neighbouring countries, Egypt and Europe.
280 000 internally displaced Palestine refugees
The Syria conflict has triggered the world's largest humanitarian crisis since World War II. Humanitarian needs are huge, population displacement persists and fighting continues in many parts of the country. In Aleppo and in other areas of the country the scale of destruction is massive; needs for basic services, protection, shelter and infrastructures are widespread in both urban and rural areas.
The full implementation of this version of the HIP is subject to the adoption of the decision amending Decision C(2015) 8936 final and conditional upon the necessary appropriations being made available from the 2016 general budget of the European Union.
