12. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephen O’Brien, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator:
“The question about the number of those fleeing Syria to the immediate neighboring countries or whether they wish to travel further into Europe, the issue for me is to make sure to get them as safe as we can and to meet their needs. And it stands to reason that if they don’t have to set off on perilous journeys their humanitarian needs are being better served.”

STORYLINE:

Stephen O’Brien, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator called for greater assistance for Syrians in need, inside the country and across the region, at the end of a visit to Hatay in southern Turkey.

The humanitarian situation for millions of Syrians across the region remains unrelentingly distressing and dire. Some 6.5 million people are internally displaced, and some five million people have fled for safety in other countries. The United Nations estimates that 13.5 million Syrians across the region are in need of some form of humanitarian and protection assistance.
O’Brien visited an orphanage in Reyhanlı, meeting Syrian children who are provided both education and a sense of normality in the classroom.

Cross-border aid operations from Turkey into Syria are vital, reaching some four million people who cannot be reached via other routes. Stephen O’Brien visited the zero-point near the Bab al Hawa border crossing.

Visiting Hatay immediately after the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, ERC O’Brien spoke of the commitments made by world leaders to put affected people affected by conflict and disaster at the centre of humanitarian action, and to alleviate suffering.

He discussed the progress and challenges in delivering aid with the Governor of Hatay, and representatives of international and local NGOs.

Despite significant progress in reaching millions of Syrians with life-saving assistance, many programmes remain critically underfunded. O’Brien urged donors to fulfil their pledges and fund the critical aid and protection activities designed to help the most vulnerable people throughout 2016.
