Extra £15m Syria aid

Extra £15m Syria aid
The Government has announced £15m extra aid to help with the Syrian humanitarian crisis.

International Development Secretary Justine Greening said the money would “help ensure people have the basic supplies they need to survive the harsh winter months”. The funding comes from DfID’s existing budget, and takes the UK’s total aid to Syria over £65m.

DfID minister Alan Duncan said British aid was having a tangible impact on the ground.

"I reckon we’ve probably helped nearly half a million people with food rations, clean water to around 11,000. It’s these numbers of people which in the end is what matters - it’s not so much the money going in, but the results out that matter, and it’s the people we’re helping who I think will be grateful for this British effort.”

Ms Greening also revealed eight armoured vehicles would be given to help aid agencies get access to hard-hit areas.
