(Geneva) – The United Nations has launched a record $5.2-billion aid appeal to fund operations in Syria and neighbouring nations, saying the number of people affected by the country’s brutal conflict was set to spiral. The sum by far overshadows the $2.2 billion (1.7 billion euros) the UN sought in 2003 to help cope with the crisis sparked by the war in Iraq.
The $5.2 billion represents money needed across this year to pay for operations that have already been undertaken, are ongoing, or are due to be carried out until the end of December. The figure for the new appeal is both an expression of the alarm about the situation facing Syrians and an absence of a political solution,” said Adrian Edwards, spokesman for the UN’s refugee agency, the UNHCR.
