Press conference by Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC, on Syria founding announcement

Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, gave a press conference on the donation by the EC of €100 million of humanitarian funding at the International Pledging Conference for Syria hosted in Kuwait on 30/01/2013. This funding, to be disbursed in 2013, was an addition to the €100 million already contracted for the crisis in 2011 and 2012, bringing the Commission's humanitarian funding for the Syrian crisis to €200 million.
These vital funds would provide assistance to some of the 4 million people in need of aid in Syria, including two million displaced, as well as to 700,000 refugees. The additional funds would cover the top priority needs in Syria and neighbouring countries: emergency medical response, with both medical and psycho-social care to the wounded and the traumatized; provision of food and safe water; provision of shelter, registration and thus protection of refugees.
