£4m more aid for Syrian refugees
Thursday 19 April 2012
Britain is to provide an additional £4 million in aid for refugees displaced by the fighting in Syria, it was announced today.
Half the funding will go to humanitarian agencies working to provide medical assistance to people injured in the fighting. The rest will be distributed through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell said: "This new British support will ensure that thousands of people receive potentially life-saving help, whether injured as a direct result of the regime's violence against its own people or trapped by the fighting and denied the medicines they need.
"It will also help to meet the basic needs of hundreds of frightened families who have fled home with nothing."
