Reaching Syrians in need
Civilians inside Syria are paying the heaviest price for the conict. The U.S. government is working with the United Nations, as well as international, non-governmental, and local Syrian organizations, to reach the more than 6.8 million in need of aid inside Syria and over two million who have ed to neighboring countries. U.S. assistance provides food, shelter, and medical care to children, women, and men aected by the conict. The United States is the single largest contributor of humanitarian assistance to the Syrian people.
The United States believes a coordinated approach through the UN is the most responsible way to maximize the international community’s eorts. Despite signicant donor assistance to date, much more is urgently needed.
