GENEVA, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— A humanitarian forum on Syria will take place in Geneva on September 7, the UN Geneva headquarters spokesman said on Tuesday.
Experts of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the League of Arab States, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Office will take part in the forum, to which regional organizations, UN member states and non-governmental organizations are traditionally invited.
In all, Geneva has played host to four humanitarian forums on Syria since March 2012. The latest event held in mid-July admitted that the Syrian crisis was far from being settled and urged more active donations for humanitarian operations in Syria.
International Committee of Red Cross President Peter Maurer, who is visiting Damascus, said on Monday that Syria’s humanitarian needs were growing manifold. The number of internally displaced persons and refugees is on the rise, too. According to the latest report of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, more than 235,000 people have fled the country.
