Japan donates over US$ 5 million to support the Syrians

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said: “The Japanese government has donated US$5 million and 100 thousand to enhance the access of Syrian children and their families to critical social services.”

UNICEF added that “600,000 children, adolescents, and women in Homs and Hama will benefit from these funds and will provide them better access to education opportunities, basic healthcare, and skill-building services.”

UNICEF pointed out that “The partnership with Japan aims to restore health centers and provide them with essential medical supplies, in addition to rehabilitating schools and providing textbooks to improve children’s learning opportunities.”

This donation comes at a time when Syrians in Assad regime-controlled areas are living in dire living conditions, in addition to the economic crisis that is worsening day by day. The crisis exacerbated by the fuel crisis, reflecting directly in the prices of most basic commodities in the markets, and the implementation of the Assad regime’s decision to lift subsidies on large groups of Syrians.

The United Nations announced that the number of people in need of assistance in Syria reached 14.6 million in 2021, a 1.2 million increase from 2020. The number of people living in extreme poverty is estimated to be about two-thirds out of the 18 million people living in Syria today.
