Summary

One third of Syria's entire population - 6.8 million people - is in need of humanitarian assistance. The vast majority are women, children, and elderly. Half of these are children. RedR has 30 years of experience supporting aid workers in complex emergencies like the Syrian crisis. We aim to establish a RedR presence in Jordan to support local and international aid workers in the area to help them improve the effectiveness of the humanitarian assistance they provide during Syria's recovery.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Syrian humanitarian crisis is complex and rapidly changing.Working in unpredictable circumstances, humanitarians are trying to reach millions needing help, often without being equipped with the right skills. One third of Syria's entire population - 6.8 million people - is in need of humanitarian aid. The vast majority are women, children, and elderly. We will train and support aid workers to more effectively reach the people whose lives have been upended by this humanitarian catastrophe.

How will this project solve this problem?

RedR plans to set up a training base in Jordan, where one third of Syrian refugees have sought asylum, to provide sustained humanitarian support in and around Syria. Our work will comprise two strands: firstly, training in essential life-saving humanitarian services, particularly for local NGOs and, secondly, needs assessment and contingency planning workshops to help front-line organisations better react to the shifting humanitarian circumstances in and around Syria.

Potential Long Term Impact

In year one, we plan to train 780 humanitarians from 70 agencies. The knock-on effect is that over 5000 humanitarians will benefit from better organisational assessment, planning, and security. In the first year, the impact will result in improved humanitarian assistance for over 250,000 refugees and internally displaced Syrians. One year of services will be offered with a view to a longer term presence supporting the humanitarian sector through the 'Response' phase and into the 'Recovery' phase
