In Turkey, with our government partner, UNICEF has increased the number of Syrian volunteer teachers receiving monthly incentives to 7,629 – more than doubling the sector target for 2015 and improving the quality of education for Syrian children.

In Jordan, UNICEF is now providing winter support to 14,800 of the most vulnerable children in Jordan through the provision of winter kits including jackets, sweaters, thermals, trousers, hats, scarves, boots and gloves.
