Ministry of Defence said:
Updated: Updated on 18 April 2013 with new latest factsheet
The crisis in Syria is gravely concerning. Hundreds of people are being killed or wounded every day and millions have been forced to flee.
Britain was one of the first to respond to the growing humanitarian crisis in Syria, providing vital food, medical care, shelter and other essential support to over a hundred thousand people affected by the fighting in the country and to refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq.
[h=3]How you can help: Disasters Emergency Committee Syria Crisis Appeal[/h]Responding to the launch of the DEC Syria Crisis Appeal, International Development Secretary, Justine Greening said:
“We welcome the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) appeal to do more for people in desperate need. This conflict continues to cause appalling suffering. Over four million people in Syria are in urgent need of assistance and a million refugees need humanitarian support.
“The British Government has led the international response with medical help, food, shelter and clean water but more needs to be done. Other donors must honour their funding promises and it is time that all parties to the conflict allow humanitarian access to all areas of Syria.”

  • over 600,000 food packages, which have fed over 120,000 people per month
  • more than 80,000 medical consultations
  • 16,000 relief packages, including items such as blankets and warm clothing
In neighbouring countries, British support is providing:

  • clean drinking water for more than 45,000 refugees, and food for more than 21000
  • education for around 1,000 children
  • clinical care and counselling for nearly 13,000 refugees, including those who have experienced trauma or sexual assault
The UK remains at the forefront of international efforts to support an effective response, led by the United Nations.
