Oxfam reaction to passage of UN Security Council resolution to extend Cross-border aid into Syria

By Oxfam

In response to news that the UN Security Council’s resolution allowing cross-border aid into Syria was renewed but modified, allowing for one cross-border response, and excluding the crucial Al-Yaroubiyeh crossing, Oxfam in Syria’s Country Director Moutaz Adham said:

“While we welcome the renewal of the resolution to allow cross-border aid, we are very concerned that the reduced crossing will limit the provision of clean water, food, shelter and healthcare on which millions of Syrians rely.

"Increasing COVID-19 cases in Syria are adding to what was already a desperate situation.

“It is now vital that the Government of Syria facilitates access and allows more agencies operating from Damascus to increase their humanitarian response for communities who rely on cross-border aid. Donors must ensure that funding is immediately available to get aid to the northeast, through all means possible.”
