As children in Syria and neighbouring countries look towards the new school term, UNICEF has only received a tenth of the money needed to help get children back to school.
Of the £6.3 million required for education within Syria, UNICEF has received just £700,000.
Syrian children have been through a 17-month long nightmare. Getting them back into schools is one of the best ways to bring back a sense of stability and hope in their lives and futures.
Estimates suggest that 2,072 schools out of 22,000 across the country have been damaged or destroyed, and over 600 are occupied by people who have had to leave their homes because of the conflict.
We're supporting the rebuilding of schools in Deraa, rural Damascus and Lattakia.
An estimated 200,000 Syrian refugees have been registered in neighbouring countries, though this doesn't include the tens of thousands that have not registered as refugees.
Across the region we're helping provide education for thousands of children. In Jordan a special school has been set up in the Za’atari refugee camp for an estimated 5,000 children. Lebanon has also seen an estimated 7,000 school children arrive, who'll be enrolled in existing refugee schools.
We'll also provide education supplies and counselling for children psychologically affected by the conflict.
