Joint Statement: NGOs welcome unprecedented step towards increased aid in Syria

Today’s United Nations Security Council resolution, which directly authorizes UN agencies and their implementing partners to deliver aid across Syria’s borders and conflict lines, is a welcome and unprecedented further step towards ensuring millions of people in Syria get the humanitarian assistance they desperately need. The consensus shown by the Security Council in passing this resolution is commendable; it must now lead to a massive increase in aid to those who need it.

34 organizations call for a ceasefire and sustained solution towards peace

Military actions by all parties must stop. Since 2009, history has shown that military operations have failed to bring peace and security for people in Gaza and in Israel.

Over the years we have repeatedly called for ceasefires and for all sides to protect civilians from harm. Sadly, these ceasefires have not lasted and we have had to revert back to life-saving relief and emergency programs, aiding innocent people to cope with the trauma, and rebuilding Gaza time and time again.

NRC distributes relief items to people displaced from Anbar

NRC has finished a first distribution of relief items to families displaced by the conflict in Anbar. “This came just in time, as some of us sleep on the ground”, explained a woman when receiving mattresses, kitchenware and other basic household items. More than 560,000 people have been displaced due to fighting in Anbar province in Iraq since late December 2013. The conflict in the province has evolved in the shadows of the conflict in neighbouring Syria, and the acute needs of the many displaced are far from being met.
