unstar this property answer text <p>We remain immensely concerned about the dreadful humanitarian situation in Al Hol camp in Northeast Syria as the camp population has grown to over 65,000 people since December 2018. The prevailing harsh winter conditions in Northeast Syria have so far resulted in the deaths of at least 97 people, two-thirds of whom were children under the age of five. Rapid increases in the camp population have severely strained the camp infrastructure and services, with shelter, water and sanitation, health and protection services identified by the UN as the priority areas.</p><p> </p><p>DFID remains committed to helping to alleviate the suffering of those in Al Hol. In 2018/19, the UK has allocated over £40 million to address basic-life saving needs across Northeast Syria where Al Hol camp is located. UK funded partners are doing all they can to support those affected by providing vital services including healthcare and shelter. Reaching those who most need our support remains an issue across Syria. The UK is therefore pressing for immediate and unfettered access to reach those in desperate need.</p>

Building on the advances made at previous international events such as the UK-hosted Global Disability Summit in 2018, we will continue to press other governments and international organisations to address intersecting inequalities to ensure marginalised children can access the quality education they deserve. We will do this through UK representation throughout the United Nations High-Level Political Forum, including at side events, making links to the Leave No One Behind agenda and SDG 4, which is one of the SDGs in focus this year.</p> more like this
