UN: Up to 2.5million Syrians need humanitarian aid [and fast]
The United Nations and its chief Valerie A. revealed to Daily News today that the U.N estimates that more than 2.5million current Syrian residents are in dire need of humanitarian aid, and it is expected to only rise.
Back in March, the U.N had visited the country discussing with authorities a battle plan to tackle the alarming number of residents needing assistance, while now they say that plan which was agreed on with Syrian authorities must be revisited before its too late.
“We thought it was 1.2 million people that needed help then. We think that figure might now be as high as 2.5 million.”
