DFID is supporting the UN, NGOs and other partners to deliver life-saving assistance to Syrians, including those who are internally displaced, by providing food, healthcare, water and other life-saving relief.

With our international partners, the UK continues to use our position in the UN Security Council and the International Syria Support Group to advocate for the protection of civilians, and calls on all parties to allow humanitarian agencies unfettered access to deliver aid to those most in need.

We monitor ongoing displacement across Syria, and maintain close contact with other donors and our humanitarian partners to ensure our programmes are supporting those most in need.
