At least 8.8 million people have been affected by the earthquake, with the majority anticipated to need some form of humanitarian assistance. This Flash Appeal will ensure assistance to the 4.9 million people with the most urgent humanitarian needs, covering an initial period of three months, until May. This Flash Appeal is complementary to the 2022-2023 Syria Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP). 2023 projects for this second year of the HRP are online at a value of US$4.8b. Finalisation of the updated HRP strategic summary document has been paused in order to prioritise the earthquake response and this Flash Appeal. The intention is to later reconcile the HRP document and the ongoing earthquake response in the coming months, in consultation with the Government of Syria.
