UN agencies appeal for funds for Syrian refugees to avoid cuts

The war in Syria has created the world’s largest refugee crisis and the international community has funded less than one-third of the $5.6bn required to support them.

UN agencies have warned they will have to curtail services for Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries unless there is a significant funding boost.

Seven years of war in Syria has created the world’s largest refugee crisis. More than five million Syrians are living away from their homes – mostly in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon.
