16 January 2017, Davos, Switzerland – While efforts to fully implement a ceasefire in Syria continue, we again appeal for immediate, unconditional, and safe access to reach the children and families who are still cut off from humanitarian aid across the country. In Syria today, there are 15 besieged areas where up to 700 000 people, including an estimated 300 000 children, still remain trapped. Nearly 5 million people, including more than 2 million children, live in areas that are extremely difficult to reach with humanitarian assistance due to fighting, insecurity, and restricted access.
