      21 January 2016 – Outlining a series of immediate, practical steps that can improve humanitarian access and the delivery of aid to those in need inside Syria, more than 120 humanitarian organizations and United Nations agencies issued a joint appeal today urging the world to raise their voices and call for an end to the Syria crisis.

Three years ago, leaders of UN humanitarian agencies issued an urgent appeal, calling for every effort to save the Syrian people, declaring in a video message that civilians had suffered enough bloodshed.

With the war now approaching its sixth year, the new appeal warns that “the bloodshed continues,” and “the suffering deepens.” This time, humanitarian organizations and UN agencies are not only appealing to governments but to citizens around the world – asking them to add their voices in urging “an end to the carnage,” and for parties to reach an agreement on a ceasefire and a path to peace.
