6.6 million Syrian children now in need of aid: UNICEF

A Syrian refugee boy poses with his newborn brother as their mother lies near them in a house in the Basaksehir district of Istanbul, on March 4, 2014More than six million children affected by the Syria conflict desperately need humanitarian aid, the UN’s children’s agency said Friday, with the number in need rising by a third in a year. UNICEF is warning that despite the spiralling numbers the organisation may have to consider cutting some vital services because of a lack of funding. “That’s an astonishing number and it’s one that is rising very, very fast,” UNICEF spokesman Simon Ingram told reporters in Geneva. The organisation has so far only received 37 percent of the $770 million (566 million euros) it needs to cover its services until the end of the year for Syrian children both inside the country and living as refugees in neighbouring countries.
