AMMAN, 08 July 2017 – “UNICEF welcomes the announcement of a contribution from Qatar to provide assistance to children impacted by the conflict in Syria.
“Across Syria, more than 6 million children are in need of assistance. This contribution comes at a critical time as UNICEF is facing the largest funding crisis since it started responding to the war in Syria more than six years ago.
“Such generosity will make a great difference to millions of Syrian children deprived of adequate health care, quality education, drinking water and much needed protection.”
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
