Extracts from the press conference by Kristalina Georgieva on Syria funding announcement

9 views

On 29 January 2013, Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, announced that the European Commission would pledge 100 million euro of humanitarian funding at the International Pledging Conference for Syria convened by Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, and hosted by Kuwait on 30 January 2013. This funding, to be disbursed in 2013, will add to the 100 million euro already contracted for the crisis in 2011/2012, bringing the Commission's humanitarian funding for the crisis to 200 million euro. In view of the catastrophic humanitarian situation and the growing needs both within Syria and in the neighbouring countries, these vital funds will 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 to date.
