We represent a broad range of UN and other organizations - from Asia to the Americas, from the Middle East to Europe - united by our horror at the pitiless conflict that is devastating civilian life in Yarmouk, Damascus, and throughout Syria. Among us are global giants like UNICEF, UN-OCHA, UN-WFP, UNHCR and Human Rights Watch. But we also include small, powerful grassroots organizations with impressive reach into their communities. With your support, we are greater than the sum of our parts.

Yarmouk: How Much Longer?

STATEMENT BY THE INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN COMMUNITY

How much longer must children suffer from hunger? How much longer must women die in childbirth for lack of medical care? How much longer must we be barred from the besieged Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus and the many thousands of desperate and vulnerable civilians caught up in Syria’s conflict? How much longer will we allow such unimaginable civilian suffering?

We, the international humanitarian community, call on the participants of the Geneva Peace Talks to lift the restrictions on Yarmouk refugee camp and all areas of humanitarian need in Syria.

Yarmouk was home to some 160,000 people before the fighting, but much of the camp has been destroyed by the conflict, and today about 18,000 people remain trapped inside, many of them women and children. With reports of malnutrition, people eating animal feed, a severe lack of medical services, and water and electricity almost nonexistent, we fear that time is running out for those trapped in Yarmouk.

Please add your voice. We hope to reach 23 million people, one for each member of the Syrian population. Together we can make the world listen.
