The European Union donates ten million euros to help those affected by the drought in Syria

The European Union has allocated an additional €10 million to assist those affected by the drought in Syria.

The European Union said in a statement that this funding is intended to help people obtain water and to rehabilitate damaged water infrastructure, and through it, sanitation and sanitary conditions will be improved in areas controlled by the regime or those outside its control, and through which foodstuffs will be provided quickly and to help expand basic medical services.

This funding will help those affected during the winter season by providing them with heating fuel, blankets and winter clothes, as well as repairing their tents.

Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarcic said: “The drought in Syria presents a huge challenge to the Syrian people, who are already in a critical situation due to the ongoing crisis”.

He added: “We must ensure that those who need protection and assistance receive them now, and that the European Union is committed to supporting the people in Syria with humanitarian aid wherever they need it, and as long as there is a need for it, in line with humanitarian principles and international humanitarian law, but more solutions must be sought permanence”.
