Syria Country Profile

Speeches Shim

Since 2011, the United States has provided over $14.1 billion in humanitarian assistance and over $1.3 billion in stabilization assistance to the people of Syria.

Ten years of conflict and Assad regime impression in Syria has led to extreme human suffering.  Today over 13 million Syrians are dependent on humanitarian assistance, almost seven million are internally displaced, and almost six million are refugees.  This suffering is exacerbated by ISIS and other malign actors.  USAID is responding with both immediate, life-saving, humanitarian assistance across Syria and the region, as well as stabilization assistance in non-regime held parts of Syria to sustainably address the underlying causes of human suffering and break the cycle of dependence on humanitarian assistance.
