GENEVA (AP) — The U.N. refugee agency says it found desperate conditions in the Syrian city of Homs, where thousands of people are living in unheated shelters and quarter of million people displaced from their homes.
The agency's spokeswoman Melissa Fleming says an assessment team visiting this week saw half the city's hospitals shut down and "severe shortages of basic supplies ranging from medicine to blankets, winter clothes and children's shoes."
Fleming said Friday there were a quarter million people displaced in and around the city with thousands in unheated communal shelters and many children unable to attend school.
But she says the agency delivered nine trucks of quilts, blankets, mattresses and other supplies and more will be sent soon.
