AMMAN (Jan. 15, 2014)—At the closing of the second Kuwait Donor Conference, the global poverty-fighting organization CARE urges governments to ensure that today’s pledges for Syrians in need are quickly translated into aid delivery on the ground and that further assistance will be made available. Governments have pledged at least 1.4 billion USD with reports of higher totals as the conference comes to a close. In total, the United Nations appealed for $6.5 billion to address urgently needed humanitarian assistance inside and outside Syria. The conference aimed to rally international financial support to meet the basic needs of more than 10 million Syrians in need.
