After seven years of war, children and families in Syria still face violence, displacement, disease and starvation every day. More than 2.6 million children have been forced to flee Syria and are living in precarious conditions in surrounding countries. Children and families across Syria and in neighbouring countries are in desperate need of clean, safe water. Inside Syria, water supply is still being used as a weapon of war.
Unicef is one of the few humanitarian agencies working inside Syria, as well as supporting refugees in neighbouring countries with urgent humanitarian aid. Unicef’s teams are working around the clock to provide life-saving food, clean water, education services, health care and psychological support to children whose lives have been devastated by the prolonged conflict.
