The Syrian Tragedy

Map of Syria

The conflict in Syria, which has been going on for ten years, has led to the biggest humanitarian crisis in the region since the founding of the United Nations. According to estimates, the fierce fighting has already claimed an estimated 600,000 lives. 13.4 million people in Syria are currently dependent on humanitarian aid, including six million children.

With funds from the Federal Foreign Office (AA) and on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Development and Economic Cooperation (BMZ), KfW is supporting the people in the country itself as well as refugees in the neighbouring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. In doing so, the AA and the BMZ coordinate closely to ensure the link between the AA's humanitarian aid and the BMZ's medium-term support.
