The Syrian Tragedy

The conflict in Syria has now spanned eight years and led to the greatest humanitarian crisis in the region since the United Nations was founded. According to estimates, violent conflict has led to several hundred thousand fatalities and over a million people injured. Millions of people in Syria currently rely on humanitarian aid, including six million children.

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and with funds from the German Federal Foreign Office (AA), KfW is supporting people in Syria itself and in the neighbouring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. The Federal Foreign Office (AA) and Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) coordinate closely to combine the humanitarian aid from the Foreign Office with the medium-term support from the Ministry.
