DFID is also the leading contributor to the Start Fund, which has disbursed over £300,000 so far in response to the flooding in Lebanon this winter. Since 2017, our partnership with Save the Children in Lebanon has included improvements to 67 flood-prone refugee settlements, mitigating the impact of the recent storm in many sites. In Iraq, DFID provides central funding to UNHCR who provide heaters, high thermal blankets and plastic sheeting to Syrian refugees.</p>

In the Northwest, for example, DFID’s support is providing access to water and sanitation services for highly vulnerable Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), including one programme that is using trucks to deliver water services, reaching over 67,000 people in need across over 100 IDP sites in the area. Elsewhere, DFID has funded UNICEF to provide life-saving water to the approximately 40,000 people in Rukban IDP camp.</p><p> </p><p>We are also committed to supporting neighbouring countries who are hosting Syrian refugees. For example, since the start of the crisis, the UK has provided funding to support sustainable access to clean water or sanitation facilities in Lebanon for over 1.1 million people in need from Syria and Lebanon. In Jordan, the UK is providing £14.1 million to UNICEF between December 2016 and November 2019 to provide refugees with access to clean drinking water, through installing water systems in refugee camps and delivering water to vulnerable households in host communities. DFID also provided £8 million to UNICEF in the last financial year to enhance access to water and sanitation infrastructure for the most vulnerable communities in Iraq, including to camps which host Syrian refugees.</p>
