Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFI) Sectors’ Publications
Five years after the conflict, Syrian people remain vulnerable as they continue to face not just physical threats but the effects of prolonged conflict.
The conflict in Syria has been going on for over five years now, an estimated 13.5 million people in Syria, including six million children, require humanitarian assistance and protection.
Around 4.3 million people lack adequate shelter and over 1 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are living in camps and collective centres.
Over 1.7 million children and adolescents are out of school. 1 in 3 schools are either damaged, destroyed or occupied. Four out of five Syrians live in poverty.
1.2 million houses have been partially damaged, out of which 400,000 have been totally destroyed causing millions of people to flee to collective shelters, schools, public spaces, tower buildings, unfinished buildings, hospitals, basements, mosques and churches or to host families mostly from the local communities and other areas.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency is leading the Shelter Sector and NFI Sector of the Humanitarian Response in Syria. And in cooperation with the sectors’ members including UN Agencies and International and National NGOs, the Shelter Sector reached 72,288 people with shelter solutions in 2015, and the NFI Sector delivered 8,024,643 basic household items to 3,052,079 people across Syria since January to October 2016.
