Statement by Kristalina Georgieva on the new package of humanitarian aid for Syria

87 views

On 7 September 2012, Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, announced that the European Commission is preparing to release an additional €50 million humanitarian funding to help Syrian civilians caught up in their country's crisis. This will bring the Commission's total contribution to €119 million. The release of the funds will begin as soon as the European Parliament and the Council have approved the decision. It would bring to €200 million the assistance from the European Commission and Member States - roughly half of all international humanitarian aid to the crisis. This puts the European Union in a clear lead in responding to the UN's call for more funding. The latest contribution from the EU will cover health care for the wounded or those in need of emergency treatment, basic healthcare services, shelter, food, water, sanitation and household items for both the displaced within Syria and the refugees abroad. The target beneficiaries include more than 1.5 million people in Syria and a large proportion of the almost 200,000 Syrians who have fled to Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. Assistance will also be provided to some 500,000 Palestinian refugees and another 87,000 Iraqi refugees who live in Syria. The funding will be channelled through the European Commission's humanitarian partners including UN agencies, the Red Cross/Red Crescent family and non-governmental organisations.
