The European Commission proposed yesterday to top up support for refugees and host communities in response to the Syria crisis by a total of €585 million. Out of the amount proposed, €100 million will go to Jordan and Lebanon, who are hosting the largest number of refugees per capita in the world. €485 million will support refugees in Turkey in 2020 and continue the EU’s two flagship humanitarian programmes.

EU projects will provide assistance in the areas of access to education, support to livelihoods and provision of health, sanitation, waste services and social protection to host communities and refugees – Syrian refugees and Palestine refugees from Syria – in Jordan and Lebanon.

So far, the EU and its Member States have mobilised more than €20 billion since 2011 to respond to the Syria crisis.
