Sweden pledges US$97 million in humanitarian support to address Syrian crisis

On March 30, 2021, during the fifth Brussels Conference on 'Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region' hosted by the UN and the EU, Sweden pledged SEK811 million (US$97 million) toward humanitarian support efforts in Syria in 2021.

After ten years of conflict, more than half of Syrians are displaced, 90% of the population lives under the poverty line, and it is estimated that 13 million people in Syria need humanitarian assistance.

Sweden has been one of the largest donors of humanitarian support since the beginning of the conflict and it helped negotiate a solution for delivering cross-border humanitarian assistance to Syrians.
