UNICEF RESPONSE AMID THE ONGOING VIOLENCE IN SYRIA

Damascus/Amman, 21 July 2012 - Despite the upsurge in fighting in Damascus and elsewhere in Syria this week, UNICEF is continuing to deliver essential aid and services to thousands of children and women.

The violence has forced large numbers of people to abandon their homes and seek safety elsewhere, sometimes with relatives, often in schools and mosques that have been opened for the purpose. It is to these locations that a large part of the relief effort mounted by UNICEF is being directed, working alongside a large number of local charitable organisations.
