The United Nations (UN) now estimates that 2.5 million Syrians are in need of assistance and the humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate.
There are currently two major coordinated funding appeals underway. One of these is the UN-led Syria Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan, which targets 1 million people inside of Syria with support provided by the UN and implementing partners. Despite the high profile of the crisis, the appeal is currently only 53% funded against its stated funding requirements of US$180 million. A further revision of the appeal is expected to be released later this month. The funding status of the appeal can be tracked in real-time here.
A second appeal, the Regional Refugee Response Plan led by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), targets displaced people in neighbouring countries and has stated funding requirements of US$193 million, of which 54% of funds have been received.
