Humanitarian access to Eastern Ghouta remains severely constrained by the Assad regime. Our partners are on the ground providing life-saving support, but desperately needed aid supplies are unable to reach them. The UK continues to demand full and sustained humanitarian access into Eastern Ghouta, and to all other besieged areas in Syria.
