The UK is at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria Crisis. We have committed over £3.3 billion to the regional response since 2012, our largest ever to a single humanitarian crisis. This includes a commitment of at least £300 million for 2020 at the Brussels IV pledging conference.

Our aid is distributed through UN agencies and International NGO partners; it provides life-saving support to millions of Syrians, supports refugees to remain in countries in the region, and enables their host communities to accommodate them. Since 2012, across Syria and the region, we have provided over 28 million food rations, over 19 million medical consultations, and over 13 million vaccines.
