Highlights

Situation

This winter has brought harsh conditions including sub-zero temperatures, freezing rain and snow across Syria and countries hosting Syrian refugees, compounding the impact of the ongoing conflicts and displacement on vulnerable children and their families. There are reports of child deaths in Syria and Lebanon, as well an increase in illnesses, such as upper respiratory tract infections, associated with exposure to cold temperatures.

Overall Response

  • To date UNICEF has distributed winter clothing, blankets, heating supplies, cash and vouchers, with 916,000 children in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey of the 1.3 million target children benefitting from all or part of the winter support package. Note: Targets and results are pending updates from Turkey.
  • UNICEF has focused the response in elevated areas of the countries and on young children.
