The United Nations appealed for $6.5 billion for Syria and neighboring countries to provide assistance to a total of 16 million people, who are according to the international agency left hungry or homeless by the Syrian conflict soon entering its fourth year.

U.N emergency relief coordinator "Valerie Amos" at a meeting of donor countries in Geneva stressed that "the Syrian appeal accounted for half of an overall funding plan of $12.9 billion to help 52 million people in 17 countries", adding "the increasing number of internally displaced people and refugees is generating greater needs across all sectors and straining the capacities of neighboring countries, with profound regional consequences ".
