US to Send $920 Million in Aid to Syria


The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced that the United States will send $920 million to Syria in an aid package to help with the many humanitarian crises plaguing the region.

The package will include money for Syrian refugee camps, food supplies, healthcare services, building supplies, and placement support for those with nowhere to go. $83 million has been set aside to go to local relief actors to aid them in getting supplies and recovery efforts underway.

The US is also working to get the United Nations to restore cross-border assistance from Turkey to help improve the lives of those living in northwestern Syria.

With this money, the US will now have sent over $1.1 billion in aid to Syria in 2023 alone. USAID has said the money has been crucial to bringing some stability back to the region.
