New €167 Million Aid Package to support Refugees and Local Communities in Lebanon and Jordan

The EU Regional Trust Fund has approved new €167 million aid package to support refugees and local communities in Lebanon and Jordan. The new projects include the public schooling of refugee children in Lebanon and social assistance for vulnerable refugees and local communities affected by the Syrian crisis in Lebanon and Jordan.

The new aid package includes: €100 million to guarantee access to education for Syrian refugee children in Lebanon; €52 million to provide social protection and assistance to vulnerable refugees and host communities affected by the Syrian crisis in Lebanon; €13 million to strengthen the resilience of Palestine Refugees from Syria, in Lebanon; €2 million to strengthen the resilience of Palestine Refugees from Syria, in Jordan.

EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn said, “The EU is continuing to deliver on its pledge to help Lebanon and Jordan, which host the largest per capita refugee population in the world. The new projects will substantially boost social protection and access to education for both Syrian and Palestine refugees from Syria, as well as for local communities.”

The assistance package was adopted by the EU Trust Fund’s Board, which brings together the European Commission, members of the European Parliament, EU Member States and representatives of Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and the World Bank. Additional aid packages are planned for Jordan and Iraq in the second half of 2018.
