• UNICEF reached 408,800 people in 243 hard-to-reach locations in Syria with life-saving
interventions and critical WASH, education, health and nutrition and child protection
services and delivered supplies for 12,200 beneficiaries in 12 besieged areas. Items
from Interagency Emergency Health Kits, diarrheal disease sets, paediatric kits and
midwifery kits were removed from inter-agency convoys to Yalda, Babela and Bet
Sahem (Rural Damascus), and Kfar Laha (Homs), while WASH supplies (aqua tabs and
sodium hypochlorite) were not approved for loading to Dar Al Kabireh (Homs).
• A recent SMART nutrition survey in besieged East Ghouta and Rural Damascus, though
indicating an acceptable level of global acute malnutrition, has revealed serious
prevalence of stunting among children under the age of five, up to 30 per cent,
indicating chronic deprivation of quality diet and poor infant and young child feeding
practices. UNICEF is participating in an interagency preparedness and response plan to
help address the needs identified.
