    Representatives from more than 60 countries will meet in Kuwait for a conference on the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

    The United Nations estimates that more than 700,000 refugees have fled to neighbouring nations.

    Another two million have been displaced by the 22-month-long conflict or are in need of food and medicine.

    The UN is seeking $1.5bn from donors to help address the growing needs of the refugees.
