敘利亞衝突持續刻不容緩 五大聯合國人道援助機構 促各國政要發揮政治影響力

受夠了!

敘利亞暴力衝突持續兩年多以來,已有超過7萬人喪生,當中包括成千上萬名兒童。事件已造成500多萬人被迫逃離家園,其中百多萬人更迫不得已逃往鄰國避難,淪為難民,也變相導致這些國家面臨巨大壓力……

太多家庭四分五裂、社區滿目瘡痍、學校和醫院遭受嚴重破壞、供水系統陷入癱瘓……
在這一切發生之後,各國政府和政黨似乎仍未充分意識到,停止敘利亞殘酷殺戮的迫切性。

 

作為聯合國負責處理這次人道災難的機構領導者,我們呼籲各國政要肩負起保障敘利亞人民及地區未來的責任。我們促請相關政要利用集體影響力,通過政治方案協助解決這一場恐怖危機。

我們五大機構和其他人道主義夥伴已竭盡所能,在各界支持下,成功幫助了過百萬名難民獲得庇護;為數百萬名因暴力衝突而流離失所的人民,提供食物和其它生活必需品;向超過550萬名受影響的敘利亞及鄰國民眾,提供水和衞生設施;也為數百萬名敘利亞人提供了基本衞生服務,包括為150多萬名兒童提供麻疹和小兒麻痺症防疫注射。

但這還遠遠不夠,在難民的需求與日俱增的同時,我們的援助能力卻因為安全、資金不足等問題,正在下降。預料在未來幾周內,我們將被迫暫停部分人道援助服務。
今天,我們並不是要呼籲更多資源——儘管這些需求存在,我們要呼籲的相比善款更加重要。我們要向已捲入這場殘酷衝突的各方人馬,以及能左右大局的各國政府,發出以下至關重要的呼籲:
奉所有遭受這場苦難,更多前途未卜的受害者之名:受夠了!請立即喚起和發揮您的影響力,把敘利亞人民和這一片地從災難中解救出來。

By late September 2012 in Syria, escalating war continues to take its toll on children and their families. Some 2.5 million people have been affected, of which 1.2 million half of them children have been displaced. Deaths, including of children and women, are estimated at 19,000. Syrians have also fled to neighboring Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey; more than 226,700 have registered with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), while over 75,000 are awaiting registration. UNICEF continues working with diverse governments, other United Nations organizations and local and international NGOs to respond to the needs of affected children both in and outside Syria. UNICEF also supports initiatives in education, water, sanitation and hygiene, health, nutrition and child protection, including the provision of child-friendly spaces and psychosocial assistance for children traumatized by their experiences in relation to the conflict. To fund this work, UNICEF has requested US$123 million, of which less than 25 per cent has been received to date.20130417_syriaappeal_2

The camp, which presently hosts over 27,000 refugees, is located on the outskirts of Mafraq, capital of the northern Mafraq Governorate. By mid-September 2012, Jordan was hosting 86,940 refugees from Syria’s escalating war. Syrians have also fled to nearby Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey, bringing the total number of refugees to over 260,500. Inside Syria, some 2.5 million people have been affected by the conflict, of which 1.2 million – half of them children – are displaced. Deaths, including of children and women, have surpassed 18,000. In Jordan, the number of refugees continues to increase. On 11 September, UNICEF and the Ministry of Health, in coordination with the World Health Organization and other partners, launched a large-scale polio and measles vaccination campaign targeting over 100,000 children staying in the Za’atari refugee camp, nearby transit centres and in host communities. UNICEF continues working with diverse governments, other United Nations organizations and local and international NGOs to respond to the needs of affected children in all host countries and inside Syria. UNICEF also supports initiatives in education, water, sanitation and hygiene and child protection, including the provision of child-friendly spaces and psychosocial assistance for children traumatized by their experiences in relation to the conflict. To fund this work, UNICEF has requested US$65 million, of which only 38 per cent has been received to date. Children wash clothes, in Za’atari, a tented camp for Syrian refugees, on the outskirts of Mafraq, capital of the northern Mafraq Governorate. UNICEF assistance in the camp includes the provision of safe drinking water and the installation of permanent latrines, bathing facilities, wash basins, as well as mobile units containing these amenities. UNICEF also supports a child-friendly space, run by Save the Children. By late July 2012, Jordan was hosting 37,380 refugees from Syria’s escalating war. Syrians have also fled to nearby Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey, bringing the total number of refugees to over 120,000 – half of them children. Inside Syria, an estimated 1.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. Deaths, including of children and women, have surpassed 17,000. In Jordan, the number of refugees continues to increase, straining already limited resources in crowded accommodation facilities. Four transit sites in northern parts of the country are hosting nearly 5,200 refugees, though their intended capacity is less than half that. Za’atari, a UNICEF-assisted tented camp, has been newly built to accommodate over 100,000 refugees. UNICEF is working with diverse governments, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and local and international NGOs to respond to the needs of affected children in Jordan, other host countries and inside Syria. UNICEF also supports initiatives in education, water, sanitation and hygiene and child protection, including psychosocial assistance for children traumatized by their experiences in relation to the conflict. To fund this work, UNICEF has requested US$39.2 million, of which only 30 per cent has been received to date. In late January, a boy receives first aid after being shot in the foot by a sniper, in a town affected by the conflict. In January and February 2012 in Syria, children found themselves in the midst of a growing conflict between rebel and government forces. By mid-March, violence had claimed the lives of more than 500 children and 244 women. By late March, the year-long conflict had killed 9,000 people and wounded many others. An estimated 1.7 million people have been affected by the violence, which has extended into at least half of the country’s 14 governorates. Education and health services have also been disrupted. Some 150,000–200,000 people have been internally displaced. An estimated 30,000 refugees – half of them children – have fled to Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. While most have registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), others have not, fearing possible retaliation against them or family members remaining in Syria. Many refugees in Lebanon and Jordan are being hosted by local families, who also require assistance. UNICEF is participating in an inter-agency assessment of needs in conflict-affected parts of Syria and has requested US$7.4 million to – with governments, UNHCR and local and international NGOs – address the needs of an anticipated total of 40,000 refugee children, including those staying with host families, in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, over the next six months. Support includes psychosocial assistance for children traumatized by the conflict to which they have been subjected or borne witness.
