Syrians in the midst of crisis
The UN estimates nearly three-quarters of Syria’s 22.4 million population will need humanitarian aid in 2014. Starvation is now threatening the Syrian population. Bread prices have risen by 500% in some areas, according to the report. Four out of five Syrians said their greatest worry was that food would run out.
The UN estimates that some 6.3 million people have been internally displaced since the conflict broke out in March 2011. More than two million Syrians have fled to neighbouring countries, including Lebanon and Turkey. Nearly half of those who have remained in Syria now rely on aid, according to the UN.
Circumstances have worsened further with the onset of harsh winter weather.
For those in refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq, the conditions created by the recent blizzard like conditions are having a huge impact on health and well-being.
The situation needs the critical intervention of the living God, Seek him on behalf of these who are most vulnerable at this time.
