"OXFAM - The crisis in Syria is one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of our generation. More than 9 million people need humanitarian aid inside Syria and there are nearly 3 million refugees, half of them children. We all have a role to play to address this shocking emergency, including the Australian Government. The United Nations has asked wealthy governments to contribute urgently-needed funds to a humanitarian crisis appeal. Based on the size of our economy, Australia’s fair share would be $106 million. The government has contributed just $30 million so far in 2014 – less than a third of Australia’s fair share. "
