Strong points

• In Turkey, more than 50,000 children and 6,500 caregivers have benefited from mental health and psychosocial support (SSMPS) services provided by UNICEF and its partners.

• UNICEF Lebanon ensured the continuity of water and sanitation services to more than 150,000 Syrian refugees, including 75,000 children, living in informal settlements across the country while simultaneously implementing alternative and innovative solutions to optimize the use of water trucking and emptying.

• Syrian children in Jordan continued to receive comprehensive 21st century vocational training, totaling over 17,000 adolescents, 60% of them women, including entrepreneurship, technical or vocational training.

• Despite an overall funding gap of 69%, UNICEF Iraq has successfully immunized more than 15,000 children and provided nearly 72,000 people with access to sufficient clean water.

• UNICEF Egypt supported 78 primary health centers (PHCs) serving the poorest communities, to maintain essential maternal, newborn and child health services in five governorates with many refugee communities for more than 1.1 million women and children.

• The 57% funding shortfall continues to undermine UNICEF’s integrated response to one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises.
