We are at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis, providing life-saving support to millions of Syrians, supporting refugees to remain in countries in the region, and enabling their host communities to accommodate them. Since 2012, across Syria and the region, UK support has delivered over 27 million food rations, 12 million medical consultations, 10 million relief packages, and 10 million vaccines. Since 2012 we have spent £426 million in Lebanon; £399 million in Jordan and £246 million in Turkey providing humanitarian assistance, basic services in areas housing Syrian refugees and improving education provision for children.
