The Syrian Crisis is in its ninth year, but the level and intensity of conflict in the country remains high. Humanitarian and protection needs are overwhelming. According to OCHA, 11.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance inside of Syria and millions have been forced to flee. Approximately 6.1 million people in Syria are living in protracted displacement. Most IDPs have sought refuge with host families and in abandoned or unfinished buildings, which are often overcrowded. Elsewhere, they reside in tents or makeshift accommodation in informal settlements and camps. 3.7 million school-aged children are in need of support and 2.1 million are out of school and disconnected from learning and their peers.
