The Syrian crisis has become the defining humanitarian challenge of mankind. Entered on the seventh year of catastrophic war and destruction in 2018, the people of Syria do not feel safe in any environment. Not only the use of chemical weapons, bombardments, and airstrikes both by the host coalition forces and rebel side but wanton destruction in the city of Aleppo, Raqqa, Sada-ul-qayiyah, Deirez-Zor depicts that as long as conflict rages people of Syria will suffer. The protection needs of people who fled the areas of war and are displaced within Syria are varied and complex. Though there has been the implementation of protection programming and funding access, significant obstacles have come across Syria, ever seen announced the cessation of hostilities in 2016; there has not been an improvement in access. The 7-year conflict has been characterized by a lack of safe, unimpeded and sustained access for civilians.
