The Minister for Trade and Development has announced that Ireland will dispatch emergency supplies to assist civilians who have been forced to flee the ongoing violence in Syria.
The shipment of tents and blankets will be used by Syrian refugees in Jordan, including in the Za’atari refugee camp, which Minister Joe Costello visited in August.
According to the Jordanian Government, more than 200,000 Syrian refugees have now sought shelter in Jordan, many of whom are living in difficult and dangerous conditions.
The package of support announced today brings the value of the Government’s response to the crisis in Syria so far this year to more than €2.2m.
