Christian Aid -  Humanitarian crisis

While we continue to provide emergency support to those affected by the conflict, only a long term solution can start the difficult process of rebuilding. The humanitarian situation for the people of Syria continues to worsen, and is having deep and lasting impacts on neighbouring countries.

There are now 8 million people in need of assistance, 2 million refugees, including 1 million children, and more than 100,000 people have lost their lives to date.

One in three buildings within Syria has been damaged or destroyed, and neighbouring countries must now cope with a hugely increased demand on their own infrastructure.

Currently, one in five people in Lebanon is a Syrian refugee. Host communities in Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey and Egypt are being placed under pressure as the number of new arrivals continues to grow. The UK government has played an important role in the humanitarian effort to assist the Syrian people and this decision will enable them to      continue to do so.

We call on the government to continue to play this role, and indeed redouble their efforts to ensure a resolution.
