On January 24, 2014, Prime Minister Harper announced additional support of $150 million in humanitarian assistance, to be disbursed in 2014, that will respond to the increasing humanitarian needs in Syria and neighbouring countries.

Of the total amount, $100 million will be allocated to helping ensure that the basic needs of conflict-affected individuals are met – including food, shelter, clean water and sanitation, healthcare, and protection for conflict-affected people – both inside Syria and in neighbouring countries. The support will also help to relieve some of the pressure on neighbouring communities in Jordan and Lebanon, where many refugees have sought and found refuge. It will be provided through experienced humanitarian partners.

In addition, $50 million will be allocated for education and child protection activities that support the “No Lost Generation” campaign.

Of the $353.5 million humanitarian assistance Canada has allocated, $203.5 has been disbursed to date.

Canada is also providing $210.7 million to support development projects in Jordan and the region to strengthen government services and infrastructure stressed by the influx of Syrian refugees, specifically in health, education and the delivery of basic services.
