Support to UNFPA’s humanitarian operation in Syria


The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland allocates EUR 2 million to support UNFPA's humanitarian operation in Syria. UNFPA provides maternity and child health clinic services, improves access to safe childbirth, prevents gender-based violence, and provides psychosocial support to survivors of violence. According to an evaluation carried out in 2019, UNFPA’s operations is Syria have been effective. Syria's humanitarian situation continues to be very difficult. Currently over 11 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, half of them are children. More than 6 million people are internally displaced, and almost 6 million people have left the country as refugees. In crisis situations, women and girls are particularly vulnerable.
