Syrian crisis. Europe releases €85 million, partly for Jordan

(BRUSSELS2) The European Union released on Monday (October 28), 85 million euros out of the 400 million euros planned to deal with the Syrian crisis. Essentially humanitarian, this aid will also provide basic services to the refugee population inside and outside Syria. Half of the remaining funds will go to Jordan to help the Jordanian government cover the additional costs of the national education system, where 78 Syrian children attend school. Part of the aid (000 million) will also be used to finance the Erasmus Mundus student exchange program. As Enlargement Commissioner Štefan Füle recalled: “ We continue to support the Syrian people with our financial aid, both inside Syria and in neighboring countries (as these) are under enormous pressure following the conflict and the influx of refugees. »
