An important appeal of the United Nations to help Syria’s population


The situation of Syrian refugees is dramatic. It is estimated that close to half of Syria’s population has been displaced. More than 2.3 billion people have fled to Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and to Kurdish north of Iraq. About 8,000 new refugees are crossing their borders every day. Tens of thousands of Syrian in Lebanon are living on the street. They need food, clean drinking water, drugs and health services, other vital things to survive, and the population left in the country’s borders has the same needs. Referring particularly to the children, Unicef’s regional director for the Middle East and north Africa, Maria Calivis, said in a statement: “It is absolutely unacceptable for children to be targeted in this manner (…)”
On the other side, dozens of volunteer workers have been killed in Syria. The hope is to raise the necessary funds even though the precedent appeal produced only more than half of the necessary, this year.
