The UK will provide new humanitarian aid to deliver lifesaving winter clothing, food and medicine for those affected by the crisis in Syria.

 

Former International Development Secretary Justine Greening announced the £21 million of support today as she met refugees near the Syrian border in Jordan.

 

£10 million of the new funding from the UK will help Jordan cope with the growing number of Syrian refugees, as thousands continue to cross its borders daily.

 

The remaining funds will provide vital aid to those affected by the crisis in Syria and across the region. This can help provide refugees in the region with vital supplies such as tents and blankets while winter continues, as well as helping to treat tens of thousands of critically injured and sick people inside Syria.
