The European Union is strengthening its support for refugees from Syria and vulnerable persons in Iraq, Jordan, and Lebanon through a new package of almost 240 million euro, raising the total assistance via the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis to more than 2 billion euro.

Text:

The new support is particularly relevant in the context of the current coronavirus pandemic and will provide additional help for the most vulnerable persons in the region and assist hosting countries to better face public health challenges, amongst others.

This approved assistance package is part of already ongoing efforts to support Syrian refugees and Syria’s neighbouring countries, pledged and provided through the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis since 2014.
