“Neighbouring countries and aid agencies are bearing the brunt of the Syrian aid effort,” says Barry Andrews
Ahead of the Third International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria, to be held tomorrow [March 31st] in Kuwait, GOAL CEO Barry Andrews has said: “It is critical that nations and international bodies make substantial pledges at Kuwait. And, unlike in previous years, that they fully honour those pledges. Too often in the past grand promises have been made, but left unfulfilled.
Two members of GOAL’s Syrian staff have suffered serious injuries following an air strike in northern Syria. One of the staff members is in a critical condition while the other will require extensive reconstructive surgery.
A third Syrian staff member was also a victim of the attack, although their injuries are not understood to be life-threatening.
GOAL’s senior management is in contact with the families of the staff members involved.
83% (Eighty-three percent) of all the lights in Syria have gone out since the start of the conflict there, a global coalition of humanitarian and human rights organisations has revealed ahead of the fourth anniversary on March 15.
Analysing satellite images, scientists based at Wuhan University in China, in co-operation with the #WithSyria coalition of 130 non-governmental organisations, have shown that the number of lights visible over Syria at night has fallen by 83% since March 2011.
