    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, MARCH 14 - The UN undersecretary for humanitarian affairs, Mark Lawcock, said there are nearly 12 million Syrians in the country and about six million refugees in neighbouring countries who continue to need aid, food, water, shelter, healthcare, and more.

    Lawcock spoke upon his arrival Thursday at the third EU-UN conference on Syria in Brussels.

    "Last year our appeals for Syrians raised six billion dollars," Lawcock said.

    "We hope to receive new generous donations. If we can get near to or even get more than the six billion dollars we raised last year, it will be a good day," he said.(ANSAmed).
