Turkey Humanitarian Fund achievements
In terms of allocations, in 2016 the Turkey Humanitarian Fund (THF) became the largest of all OCHA Humanitarian Funds globally, disbursing US$93.5 million to 144 projects, targeting 7.3 million beneficiaries.
37 per cent of this money went to directly funding the projects of Syrian National NGOs.
Of the 7.3 million beneficiaries, 55 per cent (or over 4 million) have been women and girls reflecting the HFs support to partners on the use of the Gender Marker.
Of course none of this would be possible without the generosity of the donor community who have provided over $67 million to the THF in 2016. This represents an increase of nearly 40 per cent or ($18 million) from 2015, in addition the THF’s donor base grew from 8 to 12 donors an increase of 50 per cent.
