star this property answer text <p>According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, most homes in Gaza are only getting water for a few hours every 3-5 days. The availability of safe drinking water has become worse because of fuel and electricity shortages. The UK is urging all parties to find a sustainable solution to the current situation and in the longer term, continues to urge the Israeli authorities to ensure fair distribution of water across the OPTs.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is providing lifesaving assistance to those who have fled fighting in Mosul and we will continue to do so once Mosul is liberated. We are supporting UNICEF to provide water supply facilities in 12 camps for 166,000 displaced people, about half of whom are children. We are funding UNHCR to provide cash assistance for vulnerable displaced Iraqis, allowing them to prioritise what they need most such as food or household items. The UK is also funding the International Organisation for Migration to provide healthcare for Mosul’s citizens, including upgrading four surgical and medical emergency units and supporting ten health facilities in liberated areas of Mosul. The UK is the largest donor to the Iraq Humanitarian Pooled Fund which funds projects across Iraq including protection services for children in and around Mosul.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UN has just completed an updated assessment of the humanitarian needs in and around Mosul. The UN estimates that the cost of humanitarian assistance, which includes funding to meet basic needs such as shelter, healthcare, education and water facilities, could be up to $450 million. This has been factored into the UN’s 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), which puts funding requirements for the whole of Iraq for 2017 at $984.6 million. The UK continues to work with the UN and lobby the international community to ensure that humanitarian partners have sufficient funding to meet the needs of vulnerable Iraqis.</p><p>The Department for International Development is monitoring the situation on a daily basis.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK ended its traditional bilateral aid programmes with China in 2011 and ended all financial aid to the Indian government in 2015. Instead the UK is now building relationships with these countries focused on trade and investment and on working together on global issues. We need to be clear that the Prosperity Fund is part of this new more mature partnership and allows us to share cutting edge UK expertise to support economic growth and development. This is good for these countries but is also strongly in our own national interest.</p> more like this
