Highlights

• In Turkey, more than 50,000 children and 6,500 caregivers benefited from Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) services provided by UNICEF and its partners.

• UNICEF Lebanon ensured the continuity of water and wastewater services to more than 150,000 Syrian refugees, including 75,000 children, living in informal settlements across the country whilst simultaneously implementing alternative and innovative solutions to optimize the use of water trucking and desludging.

• Syrian children in Jordan continued to receive comprehensive 21st-century skill training, totalling more than 17,000 adolescents of which 60 per cent were female, including entrepreneurship, technical or vocational training.

• Despite an overall funding gap of 69 per cent, UNICEF Iraq managed to vaccinate more than 15,000 children and provide almost 72,000 people with access to a sufficient quantity of safe water.

• UNICEF Egypt supported 78 primary health centres (PHC) serving the poorest communities, to maintain essential maternal, new-born and child health services in five governorates with high refugee communities to more than 1.1 million women and children.

• Lack of funding at 57 per cent continues to undermine UNICEF's integrated response for one of the world's largest humanitarian crises.
