Flemish government’s approval of €150,000 funding for emergency aid to Syria

The conflict in Syria has been going on for almost five years, and the humanitarian situation is becoming desperate, Flemish minister-president Geert Bourgeois’ department for foreign policy said, with more than 12 million people in need of aid.

There may be lots of aid organisations willing to help, but the problem has become so disastrous they are not able to cope with the restricted funds they have.

Some organisations, like Caritas International even work with people who are displaced in their own country, many of whom have fled from fighting around the city of Aleppo to end up in coastal areas.

They need shelter, as well as drinking water, food, health care and education for the children. The aid from Flanders will help provide essentials for some 20,000 people, particularly in the towns of Tartous, Mashta al Helou and Al Waadi.
