Over 1.7 million people, including nearly 870,000 children have fled the violence in Syria, taking refuge in neighbouring countries. Children arriving from Syria have fled for their lives, often with nothing more than clothes on their backs. Girls and boys have experienced or witnessed harrowing atrocities and suffer from distress that can significantly impact their wellbeing and development. • SYRIA: UNICEF and partners continue to provide essential psychosocial support services to over 48,704 children, in addition to 400 adolescents and 344 mothers. During the reporting period, psychosocial support was provided to 1,839 children. LEBANON: A total of 10,585 children and adolescents benefitted from psychosocial support services in this reporting period including non-formal education, recreational services and psychological first aid in Bekka and North through static and mobile outreach interventions supported by UNICEF, bringing the cumulative total to 47,114. • JORDAN: UNICEF and partners have conducted a variety of structured activities in Child/Adolescent Friendly Space revolving around team building, trust, cooperation, self-esteem, self-awareness, family issues and dealing with anger. Since the beginning of the year, a total of 55,235 (52 per cent male) children have been reached with the structured sessions, which aim to improve the psychosocial wellbeing of children in camps and host communities. • IRAQ: Child Friendly Space/Adolescent Friendly Space activities continue reaching 1,484 children and youth with activities such as sports, music and discussion sessions. • TURKEY: Youth and recreation workers are being trained to provide recreational activities for 10,000 children and youth in the camps, coinciding with the summer break in school.

UNICEF’s Response with partners Hygiene promotion activities for Transit 7 camp in Iraq started on 26 May 2013. Sixty hygiene promoters managed by Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) have reached 4,694 families (22,138 persons) by 27 June with diarrhea disease and measles vaccination awareness (almost 63 per cent of the camp). Joint efforts of UNICEF and UNHCR resulted in the issuance of a decree by the government of Lebanon allowing Syrian refugee children to sit for the Grade 9 and 12 official exams on the condition that the students submit the necessary documentation as soon as it is retrievable from Syria. The national vaccination campaign in Syria against measles and polio will end by the 30th of June. Reports received to date (although not from all districts) showed that the campaign reached around 1,086,218 children from 6 months to 15 years with an MMR vaccine, and 758,257 children under 5 with a polio vaccine.

Situation Overview and Humanitarian Needs In Homs, the general humanitarian situation remains dire. Access to “hard to reach areas” in the governorate has been limited during the reporting period. Whilst there has been a general lull in the crossfire between the main conflict parties, movement across the governorate remains unpredictable. During the second week of June, UNICEF joined an inter-agency mission to assess the humanitarian situation in Al-Qusayr. Most of the population was found having left a city that suffered heavy destruction. The main hospital was found to be destroyed and schools were also damaged. The families that the mission team spoke to mentioned that they had no intention to stay. Some had only gone back to see what could be salvaged from their property. In Aleppo, the security situation continues to deteriorate with direct impact on the humanitarian response with no dispatch of emergency supplies for over a week. Generators recently dispatched to Aleppo could not be installed in water pumping stations. Missions to Aleppo by UN staff also remained suspended. Humanitarian partners on the ground continue their work supporting IDP and affected population. The humanitarian situation in Rural Damascus is also of concern. Many communities have poor access to food and medicines with the rise in food and fuel prices over the last two weeks continuing to affect some families’ ability to feed their children. In Lattakia, approximately 900 IDP families reside at the sports facility under poor humanitarian conditions. During a UNICEF visit to the facility, an urgent need for education and WASH intervention was identified. Recreational activities are planned for IDP children, particularly during the long summer vacation. In Tartous, a considerable number of displaced persons fled to the governorate recently. The city’s capacity to cope with these IDPs is being overstretched. There are already large numbers of IDP children (girls and boys) seen at traffic lights in Tartous and around coffee shops, begging and hawking items. This practice has been on an increasing trend and is reported to occur up to late hours at night.

Programme response WASH UNICEF continues to provide safe drinking water and sanitation services through the rehabilitation of water and sewage networks. During the reporting period, 40,136 IDPs in Homs (Alwaer, Salameya , Hesia and Talbese) were provided with access to safe drinking water.

Over 243,963 Syrian refugees have crossed into Jordan since 1 January 2013, bringing the total number of Syrians now registered or awaiting registration with UNHCR to 487,543. The Government of Jordan estimates there are now over 540,947 Syrians in the country, of which over half are children under 18. A total of 11,749 refugees have been transported to Za’atari and Emirates Jordanian Camp (EJC) refugee camps by IOM so far in June. Since the beginning of June, an estimated 500 people have been brought to the camps by IOM every day (compared to 800 a day in May).

Programme response WASH UNICEF partners the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and World Vision are progressing with the construction of WASH facilities in the new Azraq camp, being designed for 10,000 people, with the first set of septic tanks now installed. A total of 4,744 tanks will be installed, which will serve up to 56,928 beneficiaries. The first zone/’village’ of the camp will be ready by mid-July. UNICEF partner OXFAM has contracted the installation of water storage tanks area in Za’atari (module 7). The contractor has 3 mobilized and started gravelling and grading of the land, in order to install 13 tanks (each of which has a capacity of 95 m ) which will increase water storage capacity at the two boreholes constructed in the camp. These tanks will help provide a more accessible and reliable water supply, especially ahead of the increased needs expected in the upcoming summer months. UNICEF/OXFAM have finished decommissioning the temporary WASH blocks in module 4 of the camp and completed the hand-over of 48 new blocks (288 latrines and 240 showers) to WASH committees, which will serve up to 14,400 refugees in the area. The WASH committees are working to keep the blocks clean and properly maintained. UNICEF attended a workshop with Yarmouk Water Company (YWC) to discuss the challenges faced by water authorities in the North Governorates regarding water, sanitation, and hygiene issues. UNICEF/YWC are trying to identify solutions that can be of help in facing these challenges especially in the coming summer and the shortage of water supply in Jordan and the noticeable increase in the number of Syrian refugees in the host communities.

Child Protection UNICEF and partners have conducted a variety of structured activities in Child/Adolescent Friendly Spaces camps revolving around team building, trust, cooperation, self-esteem, self-awareness, family issues and dealing with anger. Since the beginning of the year, a total of 55,235 (52 per cent male) children have been reached with the structured sessions, which aim to improve the psychosocial well-being of children in camps and host communities. Of these, an estimated 10 to 15 per cent also received case management services.

SYRIA CRISIS BI-WEEKLY HUMANITARIAN SITUATION REPORT UNICEF/Save the Children International currently oversee a total of 12 community based child protection committees in Za’atari. Each committee is composed of ten to 15 Syrians (men and women). Through these committees, some 9,770 refugees (51 per cent female) have been reached with awareness raising messages on child protection, GBV and positive discipline. UNICEF/Mercy Corps have finished installing durable shading in four playgrounds in Za’atari and King Abdullah Park (KAP) camps which have been reopened. Two new playgrounds (in modules 6 and 7) have been added. Special activities were organised for children in larger covered play areas on World Refugee day. During the reporting period, a total of 15,000 children attended different playgrounds in Za’atari and KAP. To date, a total of 9 playgrounds have been opened with UNICEF support in both these camps. Since the beginning of the year, UNICEF/International Rescue Committee (IRC) have registered 274 unaccompanied children in Za’atari, out of which 180, or 67 per cent, have been reunified with parents/caregivers or relatives. A total of 60 children have been placed in foster care while the remaining 34 children are currently unaccounted for. In the reporting period, six new foster families were identified and screened. In the same period, community outreach teams identified and registered 64 separated and seven unaccompanied children.

Education Students at the School II in Za’atari camp have resumed school after a 10-day mid-term vacation. This second semester will run from 23 June to 12 September 2013. At School I, final exams started on 24 June and will continue until 12 July, followed by the summer holiday which will last until the end of September. A total of 508 students in Za’atari are now enrolled in catch up classes in the Remedial Education Centre run by UNICEF partner Relief International (RI), of which over half are girls. 244 students are registered for catch up classes held in the School II. In addition, 140 students are enrolled in the catch-up classes in King Abdullah Park (KAP) and Cyber City (CC). This brings the total number of students enrolled in catch-up classes in Za’atari, KAP and CC to 892. In addition, NRC supported by UNICEF has started an informal education programme in Za’atari in a new youth centre located below Module 3 .To date, 719 Syrian students (54 per cent girls) have registered, out of a target of 840 students. On 16 June, UNICEF hosted a meeting with all education actors in Za’atari camp to discuss operational issues, comprehensive mapping schedules, gaps and outreach strategies in terms of coverage (currently covering children and youth aged 6-24). The mapping of education services has begun and is expected to assist in identifying gaps and responding to the needs more effectively, in addition to ensuring better referrals. In host communities, the number of Syrian and Jordanian students registered in summer activities run in 10 centres by UNICEF/Madrasati Initiative has reached 1,128. These activities are run in 10 centres and offer children a variety of activities, including art, sports, computer skills, life-skills and awareness sessions, puppet shows, and recycling projects.

Health The Ministry of Health (MoH) and UNICEF/UNHCR/WHO are continuing the mass measles vaccination and Vitamin A supplementation campaign. The campaign was launched in Irbid and Mafraq on 8 June and targets Syrian, Jordanian and other children aged six months to 15 years for measles vaccination and children six to 59 months for Vitamin A supplementation. A total of 507,448 children (including some 62,000 Syrians) have been vaccinated against measles during the first two weeks of campaign, while, 207,084 children (6-59 months) have received Vitamin A –out of a target of nearly 600,000 for measles and over 205,000 for Vitamin A. With UNICEF technical support, IOM has been immunizing of newly arrived Syrian refugees against measles and polio in Za’atari and EJC camps continues . Measles vaccination is provided to refugees aged six months to 30 years, polio to children 0 to 59 months, and Vitamin A supplementation to children aged six to 59 months. Since the start of the programme on 16 April, 35,695 children (six months to 15 years of age) have been vaccinated against measles and 10,610 children (0-5 years) against polio. In addition, 9,855 children (6-59 months) were provided with vitamin A supplementation. This brings the total number of children (six months to 15 years) vaccinated against measles in both Za’atari and EJC camps since the start of the year to 106,800. During the last week, 478 children under five visited the five Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) corners established in Za’atari (two in the Medecins du Monde clinics, two in Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) caravans and one in the MSF hospital). The majority of these were for cases of watery diarrhea with no dehydration and 40 required referrals to health facilities and Diarrheal Treatment Units for further assessment.

Nutrition During the last two weeks, 1,423 mothers and 798 children under five visited the two UNICEF/Save the Children Jordan (SCJ) IYCF caravans in Za’atari camp. In addition, 2,786 children under five and lactating mothers received nutritional snacks. Through 11


SYRIA CRISIS BI-WEEKLY HUMANITARIAN SITUATION REPORT this project, UNICEF/SCJ provide nutritional support and guidance, including breastfeeding promotion, complementary child feeding, one-to-one counseling, and health education sessions for pregnant/lactating women in the camp. A third IYCF caravan will be setup in the camp by mid-July.

Inter-Agency Collaboration and Partnerships Two members of the Child Protection sub-working group participated in a three day training 'Gender for Humanitarian Action' facilitated by the IASC GenCap Senior Gender Advisor. The two members will be the Sector Gender Focal Points and will be expected to assist the sector to identify the distinct needs of women, girls, boys and men, tailor sector strategies to meet these needs and to measure the difference it makes for women, girls, boys and men. UNHCR, UNICEF and all partners coordinated a variety of activities to mark World Refugee Day on 20 June. UNICEF Jordan Representative Dominique Hyde published an Op-Ed piece in the Jordan Times ahead of Refugee Day on the situation of Syrian and vulnerable Jordanian children in the country, especially those in host communities. The article is available here: http://jordantimes.com/helping-ensure-syrian-children-do-not-become-a-lost-generation.

Communications for Development (C4D) UNICEF is preparing C4D strategies for the Back-to-School campaign in Zaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;atari camp and host communities, to distribute messages on the importance of education to the Syrian refugee children and parents. UNICEF is also planning to mobilie youth groups to paint key child protection, education, hygiene and health messages on WASH blocks in Zaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;atari.

Iraq Highlights • •

Relocation of refugees from Camp 1 and 2 to Al-Obedy is underway. The preliminary results of a UNICEF-funded standard rapid nutrition survey among 900 children under the age of five in Domiz camp has been made available by the Ministry of Health. The survey revealed a Global Acute Malnutrition Rate of 7.4 per cent. A new health and hygiene promotion (HHP) technical working group was established in Domiz to ensure a coherent approach to HHP.

Situation Overview and Humanitarian Needs The situation in Domiz and Al-Anbar remains stable. However, the number of refugees entering northern Iraq from Syria has decreased dramatically as a result of the closure of the Sehela border crossing between Syria and Iraq (Dohuk Governorate). Between 1-20 June, only 3,731 Syrians were recorded as persons of concern with UNHCR; a significant reduction from a peak of 30,998 new arrivals in February 2013.

In contrast to the long-term trend of the vast majority of Syrians settling in Duhok, in this reporting period arrivals were minimal (82), with the majority of Syrians electing to settle in Erbil (3,197) and Sulemaniyeh (1,137). Al-Qaim continues to trend toward depopulation for the fifth consecutive month with 377 refugees electing to return to Syria, leaving a total registered population of 5,570 from a peak of 8,955 in January 2013.

Programme response WASH Western Iraq All WASH facilities in Al-Obedy were tested in preparation for the relocation of the refugees from Camp 1 & 2 to the new camp. Relocation started on 23 June with an average of 250 refugees per day. In coordination with the Directorate of Water in Al-Qaim, WASH facilities in Jerejeeb and Al-Obedy will be rehabilitated by UNICEF in preparation for the increased demand of water during the summer months when water requirements will exceed current capacity. The new phase of a hygiene promotion campaign supported by UNICEF started in the host community in Al-Qaim district covering 300 refugee families through the distribution of Family Hygiene Kits to all refugees by UNICEF’s implementing partner, Save the Children.

Northern Iraq 3

Construction of the water network for Transit 7 continues as does the work in laying the main pipes and connections to tents; the 21m storage tanks were placed on the 10 bases and work is now focused on connection the tanks to pipes. Household connections to more than 800 tents have been completed bringing coverage to 90 per cent. The main water pipe for Transit 7 was connected to the main water pipe feeding the camp. Hygiene promotion activities for the whole camp started on 26 May 2013. Sixty hygiene promoters managed by Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) have been distributed amongst all areas of the camp to provide regular hygiene and sanitation promotion for over 35,000 people in the camp. To date, 4,694 families (22,138 persons) have been received Diarrhoea disease and measles vaccination awareness covering almost 63 per cent of the camp.

SYRIA CRISIS BI-WEEKLY HUMANITARIAN SITUATION REPORT

Child Protection Western Iraq Preparations are ongoing to transfer the Child and Youth Friendly Spaces (CFS/YFS) from Al-Qaim to the new camp in Al-Obedy. To minimize disruption, three classrooms from the camp school will be used temporally for the CFS/YFS activities until the final transfer of the CFS/YFS in the new camp is complete. UNICEF in collaboration with UNAMI, provided new playground items to the CFS. The CFSs are catering up to 400 children per day, six days per week in three shifts according to age and gender.

Northern Iraq A two-day Child Protection Strategic Planning Workshop organized by UNICEF took place on 16-17 June in Dohuk attended by all the major Child Protection actors. A final plan was drafted and shared with partners for review and comment before final endorsement by the Child Protection Working Group on July 8. The UNICEF Child Protection section in Dohuk has completed a desk review of the child protection issues affecting of Syrian children in Dohuk. The desk review will serve as a basis for future child protection work in the area and will be shared with partners. CFS/YFS activities continue, with 530 children (275 boys and 255 girls) attending the ACTED CFS and YFS, while 583 children are registered in the CFS run by DOLSA/UNICEF. DOLSA opened a new YFS is offering activities such as sports, music and discussion sessions for 371 (216 boys and 155 girls). The two Child Protection Units (CPU) are providing critical support for children in the camp. In total, 32 new cases were registered during the reporting period (12 in the ACTED operated CPU and 21 in the DOLSA/UNICEF CPU). UNICEF has been coordinating with Save the Children to roll out child protection training for all CP stakeholders in the camp, including at the CFS/YFS and CPUs. The training will ensure a consistent approach to child protection issues and planned activities.

Education Western Iraq UNICEF, in cooperation with the Directorate of Education and Implementing Partners (IP) started the summer school in Camp 1 & 2 with variety of activities including painting, calligraphy, embroidery and sewing, chess, football, volleyball, poetry competitions and theater activities. In addition, classes for mathematics, Arabic and English will be arranged for grades 5 - 8. This will alleviate the impact that restricted movement will have on students during the summer period.

Northern Iraq UNICEF is supporting the Department of Education to finalize the programme for summer school courses whereby 2,000 students will receive training in fine arts and sport for a period of 45 days. Committees have been formed to manage the activities and purchase the required training supplies. The activities are expected to start early July. The rehabilitation of Jiyan School continues and involves the enhancement of WASH services targeting the 1,400 students who are currently attending the school for catch-up classes. UNICEF through local contractor, is up keeping this and two other schools, and ensuring health and hygiene systems are functioning properly; in addition to supplying clean water in the schools. Construction of an additional primary school is underway in Transit 6 in Domiz. No school will be established in Transit 7 due to problems with the availability of land. In Dara Shakran Camp, Erbil, one school is being constructed with the support of UNICEF. In order to improve monitoring and analysis of student enrollment and performance data, UNICEF with the support of Harikar NGO, is computerizing the pupil information system. This will result in the more rapid identification of students not attending class, dropping out and under-performing.

Health Western Iraq The Primary Health Care centre in Camp 2 will continue to provide immunization and other primary services until all refugees move to the Al-Obedy camp. During the reporting period 18 children under five received routine vaccinations and 54 women of child-bearing age received their tetanus shots. The decrease in numbers from the last reporting period is due to an increase in the number of refugees returning to Syria. In coordination with Directorate of Health in AL-Qaim, water quality control monitoring program supported by UNICEF will be activated in the new camp starting from 1 July.

SYRIA CRISIS BI-WEEKLY HUMANITARIAN SITUATION REPORT

Northern Iraq Despite the border closure, the Directorate of Health continues to receive 150 - 200 newcomers every day in Domiz Camp, whose children age 0 to 5 receive Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR) and Vitamin A supplements. Expanded Programme of Immunization (EPI) services are provided in Domiz camp and reach about 100 children under the age of 5 per week, following the Iraqi EPI calendar including BCG, Dyphteria/Pertussis/Tetanus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type B, Oral Polio Vaccine, MMR and rota virus antigens. UNICEF supports the vaccination teams with food allowances, transportation and cold chain supplies. As part of its support to the Cholera Preparedness Plan 2013, UNICEF provided 50.000 sachets of Oral Rehydration Salt to the Directorate of Health in Duhok in the reporting period.

Nutrition Western Iraq As a part of the anemia prevention program, 74 pregnant and 76 breast-feeding women visited the Primary Health Center and received ferrous folic acid and 26 also received Vitamin A supplements. Growth of 94 children under 5 was monitored last month and 14 received vitamin A supplements as a result.

Northern Iraq The preliminary results of a UNICEF-funded standard rapid nutrition survey among 900 children under the age of five in Domiz camp have been made available by the Directorate of Health during the reporting period. The survey revealed a Global Acute Malnutrition Rate (GAM) in Domiz Camp of 7.4 per cent with Severe Acute Malnutrition accounting for 2.2 per cent of the total GAM. According to the WHO classification of malnutrition the result indicates a poor/medium nutritional status of the children under five in the camp.

Inter-Agency Collaboration and Partnerships A new Health and Hygiene Promotion (HHP) Technical Working Group (TWG) was established by UNICEF in Domiz for the purpose of ensuring a coherent approach to HHP and with the goal of developing a HHP strategy for Domiz camp. The TWG will meet every fortnight. The WASH working group meeting was held in Domiz on 19 June with 25 participants from Government, UN and the NGO community.

Situation Overview and Humanitarian Needs On 20 June 2013, the Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) of the Government of Turkey reported that the total number of Syrians registered and accommodated in 20 camps in 10 provinces is 200,039. It was reported by various sources including local officials that due to ongoing conflict in various locations, the movement of people across the border has intensified. Reportedly at Akcakale border, authorities are admitting approximately 100-150 persons per day, with approximately 3,500 people currently located at the border (Jarablus), the nearby IDP camp and town. The Elbeyli camp, situated in Kilis province, has begun to receive new arrivals. Camp officials have reported that many new arrivals will come from the IDP camp Bab Al Salame within Syria. In addition a number of vulnerable Syrians living in Kilis urban areas are expected to be admitted to Elbeyli. The camp manager noted that 600 Syrians per day are being admitted to Elbeyli, which is expected to increase to 1,000 new arrivals per day in the near future. During the admission to the camp, Syrians receive a health screening and children are vaccinated before being allocated their container shelter.

Programme response Education UNICEF will bring together over 1,500 Syrian teachers for a one day training on Child Friendly Education and InterAgency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) Standards. The training will be staggered during the last week of June and the first week of July in different provinces – Hatay, Sanliurfa and Gaziantep. During this time UNICEF will also begin a profiling exercise to st better tailor the training to the needs of the teachers. UNICEF Turkey’s International Education Officer arrived on the 21 of June and will begin the more detailed training plan for the coming academic year. Child Protection and Youth The identification youth and recreation workers has been completed by the Turkish Red Crescent Society (TRCS). Recreational facilitators and youth workers have been identified, of which approximately half have Arabic language skills (Arabic speakers to be paired with non-Arabic speakers). The initial training of youth and recreation workers will begin on 1 July. Immediately following this training, the youth and recreation workers will be deployed to the camps to begin mobilizing the youth volunteers, and planning and implementing recreational activities for children and youth in the camps. As the Ministry of Family and Social Policy (MoFSP) now has a number of designated staff (including social workers) working with children in the camps, these activities, targeting 10,000 children and youth aged four to 18 years old, will be implemented in coordination with existing structures and activities. The timing of the deployment of the youth and recreation workers coincides with the summer break in school which means there will be increased participation and momentum for youth activities in the field. 18
