EC to give EUR 28 mln in humanitarian aid to Jordan
The European Commission will give EUR 28 million in humanitarian aid to support Syrians displaced by the conflict in their host communities in Jordan, according to a press release of the EC.
The funding allocation was announced by European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides, who is currently on a visit to Jordan and Lebanon.
"The coming winter will bring additional hardship to the most vulnerable Syrian refugees in Jordan so we are stepping up our humanitarian aid. The funding will help cover basic needs of refugees and host communities such as health care, clean water, shelter, rent and education," he said, the reports says.
On his visit, the Commissioner will discuss the growing needs of Syrian refugees with government officials and humanitarian partner organizations, visiting refugee camps and seeing the humanitarian situation first hand.
