The worsening of the security situation in Syria over the past 5 years has led to massive population displacement inside and outside Syria. UN Agencies estimate that the number of internally displaced is now reaching 6.5 million (OCHA, 2015), and 4.2 million of people are registered as refugee by the UNHCR in the neighbouring countries (Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt, Iraq).

The Syrian economy has been severely affected by the crisis and is expected to continue to decline. Productive sectors have almost come to a standstill due to insecurity in agricultural as well as industrial areas. Disrupted transport links, electricity and fuel recurrent shortages make worse the daily life of Syrian people. Security issues as well as access to the field remain a huge concern to carry out humanitarian project supporting the conflict-affected Syrian families.

Urgent humanitarian assistance is required in terms of health, food, NFIs, shelter, WaSH, education and livelihoods in order to improve the living conditions of the estimated 13.5 million people in need in Syria (OCHA, 2015). The Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), RC/RC movement, UN Agencies, national NGOs and few INGOs are providing relief to the crisis-affected Syrian population all over the 14 Governorates.
