The UK has pledged £700 million in response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria and the region, of which £360 million has been allocated to support refugees in Syria’s neighbouring countries. This has provided food, access to water, shelter, sanitation and hygiene services, medical consultations and other relief items, and education to hundreds of thousands of refugees, many of whom live in camps, in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt.
