March 31, 2016
The European Commission adopted, on Wednesday 30 March 2016, a EUR 30 million programme to provide 350,000 Syrian children with milk, “as part of the already substantial aid provided by the EU to those in need as a consequence of the crisis in the region”, the Commission said in a press release.
“This new programme will help hundreds of thousands of Syrian children in need. We must remain committed to helping the most vulnerable victims of the conflict. This additional support will go to humanitarian partner organisations working in the country”, said EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides.
