Second International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria
The humanitarian situation in Syria and the condition for refugees in neighbouring countries continue to deteriorate. More than 9 million Syrians now need assistance, including 6.5 million people displaced inside their own country who are struggling to survive and cope with the crisis. More than 2.2 million more people have fled Syria since January 2012, seeking refuge in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt.
The 2nd Pledging Conference for Syria aims to rally international financial support to meet the basic humanitarian needs of these millions of Syrians. It will be held on 15 January 2014 in Kuwait City and will be chaired by the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon and hosted by the Emir of Kuwait, His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah.
In January 2013, the 1st Pledging Conference for Syria saw 43 Member States pledge US$1.5 billion towards humanitarian efforts. Those funds were used to provide life-saving assistance for millions of people in Syria and surrounding countries, including emergency food rations, mobile medical care and vaccinations, clean water and sanitation, and basic shelter.
