DFID funds the UN and NGOs to provide humanitarian support in Idlib, including food, clean water, sanitation, healthcare, shelter and education. Also, through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, we help deliver key services and access to education and jobs. Between January and June 2017, our support in Idlib governorate provided 550,000 people with access to clean drinking water, immunised 362,000 children under five, and helped 254,000 children access education.
