star this property answer text <p>Yarmouk camp has been besieged for several years. Humanitarian access remains restricted due to ongoing military activity and the presence of Daesh. The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), supported by DFID, has had no direct access to the camp since April 2015.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to call on all parties to protect civilians, and to allow humanitarian agencies unfettered access to provide aid to those most in need, including at the UN Security Council and the International Syria Support Group. The Secretary of State for International Development and Minister of State for the Middle East focused on these messages at the ‘Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region’ Conference in Brussels on 24 and 25 April.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Women and girls raped in conflict situations need access to a comprehensive range of sexual and reproductive health services. The UK funds partners to deliver such services. For example, we are working with agencies such as UNFPA to provide essential sexual and reproductive health care within our humanitarian responses, including in Ukraine and Syria. We encourage other donors and partner agencies to increase provision of sexual and reproductive health services including full implementation of the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP). These may include access to safe abortion services as set out in our policy paper on safe and unsafe abortion.</p><p>The Secretary of State made a commitment at the UN General Assembly in 2015 that in humanitarian crises, DFID calls for proposals will require the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls to be considered. We are working with our partners to operationalise this commitment.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Within the next five years the UK Government hopes to see an improvement in access to clean water, energy and jobs in Gaza. We would also like to see all parties ease movement and access restrictions. This would make it easier for Gazans to sell their goods to Israel and other countries in the region; and for small businesses to grow and create jobs. DFID's new economic development programme will support all these activities.</p><p> </p><p>However, we are clear that a durable agreement is needed to address the underlying causes of the conflict and to transform the situation in Gaza. This is why the UK continues to support progress towards a two-state solution that permanently ends the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Such an agreement should ensure that Hamas and other terrorist groups permanently end rocket fire and attacks against Israel and accept the Quartet Principles; the Palestinian Authority resumes control in Gaza and restores effective and accountable governance; and that Israel lifts its restrictions to ease the suffering of ordinary Palestinians and allow the Gazan economy to grow.</p><p> </p>

The UK firmly believes that achieving gender equality is both the right thing to do and is in everybody’s interest. That is why women and girls’ rights are at the heart of all our development work. Through the UK’s aid spending in some of the poorest countries in the world we have improved financial services for over 36 million women, given 10 million women access to modern methods of family planning and helped over 5 million girls attend school.</p><p>Women and Children First UK received DFID funding through Comic Relief grants; a) £282,018 in 2015–16, b) £317,127 in 2016–17 and c) £103,604 in 2017–18.
