star this property answer text <p>The UK has played a leading role in the Nepal earthquake response. Immediately after the 2015 earthquake, the Department for International Development (DFID) provided humanitarian relief for thousands of displaced people. This included reaching over 250,000 people with shelter support and providing over 200,000 people with clothes, blankets and mattresses.</p><p>We are now supporting reconstruction. We have already repaired water supplies for over 33,000 people, and rehabilitated 114km of remote trails. We are working with the Nepali Government to find solutions for all households who remain displaced by the earthquake. Over the next 5 years we will reach over 250,000 with improved water and sanitation and invest in housing reconstruction, supporting poorer households to rebuild safe homes.</p> more like this

In November 2016, the Secretary of State announced new funding to support 40 grassroots organisations with the local knowledge and expertise to address Female Genital Mutilation and child, early and forced marriage. We have also increased funding to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, which provides grants to women’s rights organisations and other small grassroots organisations.</p> more like this

From 2010 to 2016, DFID provided £18 million to Fairtrade International to support their work and strengthen the global Fairtrade system. This includes Fairtrade producer and worker organizations that contribute to inclusive economic, environmental and social development in their communities around the world. DFID continues to actively engage with Fairtrade on a variety of projects and campaigns, such as supporting the pilot of Fairtrace, a technology based supply chain mapping programme run with Fairtrade’s supply chain assurance partner, FLOCERT.</p> more like this

The UK has provided 19.7 million food rations, 6.7 million health consultations, and over 2 million vaccines to people in need across Syria. The UK continues to use its position in the UN Security Council and the International Syria Support Group to press the Assad regime and its backers to allow aid to reach those who need it, while maintaining the pressure for a political settlement to bring the suffering of the Syrian people to an end.</p><p> </p> more like this

However, our partners tell us that current priorities are to improve security and access to food and medical care. We welcome the progress made to enable the UN to restart deliveries of essential supplies. However, we remain concerned by delays to recent aid distributions and the low number of attendees at the UN health clinic.</p><p>We will not be making a further statement at this time.</p> more like this

Fairtrade provides a minimum price for sales, as well as a premium, and certifies smallholder and plantation supply chains, as well as extractives such as gold.
