Syria crisis: EU delivers on its pledges and mobilises another €85 million for Syria and Jordan
Bruxelles, 28 octobre 2013

The European Commission has allocated another part of the recent package of €400m to deal with the consequences of the Syrian crisis. This newest allocation is aimed at providing assistance to the population inside Syria, Syrian refugees and host communities living in Jordan, as well as Syrian students in Europe. In total, it amounts to €85 million.

Approximately half of this additional support (€40m) that has just been adopted, will be spent inside Syria; helping civil society groups to provide basic services (such as health, education, psychosocial support and waste management), supporting UNICEF’s efforts to provide education to vulnerable and internally-displaced Syrian children, and providing income-generating activities and opportunities to make a living inside Syria, particularly for women, young people and people with disabilities under the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), for example. Some of the funding will also go towards helping UNESCO to preserve the country’s rich cultural heritage, which is currently affected and threatened by the conflict. […]

Bruxelles, 23 octobre 2013

La Slovaquie, la Hongrie, la Slovénie et l'Autriche fournissent aux autorités bulgares une aide, coordonnée par la Commission européenne, destinée à leur permettre de gérer l'afflux de réfugiés syriens. À ce titre, ce sont plus de 2 000 lits rabattables et matelas, plus de 4 200 couvertures et autres objets tels que des articles de literie, des serviettes, des ustensiles de cuisine et des couverts qui ont été distribués.

Cette aide est accordée à la Bulgarie dans le cadre du mécanisme de protection civile de l'Union européenne, activé par la Bulgarie le 16 octobre. Depuis lors, le centre de coordination de la réaction d'urgence de la Commission européenne collabore avec les participants au mécanisme afin d'apporter à la Bulgarie l'assistance dont elle a besoin alors que ses capacités nationales sont mises à l'épreuve comme jamais auparavant.

« Je voudrais remercier les pays qui ont apporté leur aide dans un délai si court. La Bulgarie a mis tout en œuvre pour gérer le flux migratoire. L'aide fournie par la Commission européenne et les États membres démontre que la Bulgarie n'est pas seule dans cette crise », a déclaré Mme Kristalina Georgieva, commissaire chargée de la coopération internationale, de l'aide humanitaire et de la réaction aux crises.
