The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has announced that it will launch an appeal tomorrow for people affected by the conflict in Syria.
The announcement follows what the Committee calls, "a dramatic deterioration in the humanitarian situation since the beginning of the year."
The DEC said that the majority of its members were already supporting work inside Syria but most could not talk in any detail about their activities without putting their work and workers at risk. Despite these efforts huge and urgent unmet needs remain.
DEC member agencies are also providing help to some of the more than one million refugees who have fled to neighbouring countries.
