Following the liberation of Raqqa City, we are helping to clear landmines and explosives to enable those displaced to return to their homes safely as soon as possible. However, for the majority of internally displaced people in Syria to return home safely there must be an end to the conflict and a credible political settlement. In the meantime, the UK is providing food, healthcare, water and other life-saving relief to vulnerable Syrians, including internally displaced people, across the country.
