With this funding, total U.S. humanitarian assistance since the start of the crisis will reach more than $2.4 billion.
$1.2 billion will help over 4.7 million people inside Syria, and $1.2 billion helping nearly 3 million refugees and host communities in the neighbouring countries affected by the crisis.
The United States remains the largest donor of humanitarian aid for those affected by this crisis.
For the refugees from Syria in the region, and the host communities straining to support them, this additional assistance provides food, shelter, medical supplies, and other life saving assistance.
Throughout the region, U.S. funding has helped contain the spread of polio with a vaccination campaign that has reached 25 million children; provided tens of thousands of children schooling and educational materials.
