Statement by Kristalina Georgieva on latest figure of refugees fleeing from the Syrian crisis

94 views

Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, made a statement on latest figure of refugees fleeing from the Syrian crisis.
The humanitarian situation had deteriorated dramatically in the past weeks. The escalating violence and increased insecurity in the country was making it harder and more dangerous for humanitarian workers to do their jobs. Attacks on humanitarian workers continue. Twenty Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers and eleven UN members were killed doing their humanitarian work, and ambulances and UN vehicles were still being attacked.
Emergency needed such as medical and food assistance and shelter had increased in the country. Treating and evacuating the wounded was a priority. Civilians attempting to flee from the fighting needed urgent assistance and protection. Beyond emergency needs, shortages of all kinds, including fuel, were affecting the civilian population.
The Commission was in daily contact with its humanitarian partners and was coordinating its humanitarian activities with EU Member States and all other significant donors.
