Humanitarian Context

Although talks in Geneva and Astana appeared to herald an end to seven years of war in Syria, 2017 broke the record for population displacements within the country with 7,665 people fleeing the violence every single day. Faced with ever-tighter borders, children, women and men have entered a downward spiral into survival mechanisms as harmful as child labour, children dropping out of school, and gender violence. This also results in a severe test for the population’s nutrition security. Around half a million Syrians are trapped in ten besieged locations, with Aleppo, Raqqa and Gouta being the most well known.
Difficult access has been a major challenge because, in addition to the difficult security conditions, the authorities have imposed controls and major limitations on our access to the most vulnerable regions. Despite these barriers, among other things in 2017 we managed to enter Aleppo at the start of the year, and to commence an emergency response in the Al Areesha camps and in zones under Kurdish control such as Hasakeh.
