US News & World Report: The Challenge of the Syria Response

As the conflict in Syria rages on, people continue to flee the violence often with just the clothes on their backs. There are now 7.6 million people displaced inside Syria and more than 3 million refugees in neighboring countries throughout the Middle East region.

This is the worse humanitarian crisis that’s happened in three decades, and aid agencies are operating with minimal resources to respond to the escalating humanitarian needs. Urgent funding is needed to meet even the most basic needs like food and hygiene.

“One of the challenges for the international community is just the scope of this crisis,” says Blake Selzer, CARE’s senior advocacy coordinator for Syria Response. As a brutal winter sets in, Selzer adds, “The biggest challenge is funding and getting the materials out to the population in time.”
