Cash for work: Helping close to 2 000 families in Syria to get by

Despite the current refugee crisis, the overwhelming majority of Syrians remain in their country. As the situation continues to deteriorate, in addition to providing immediate material and food aid and supporting schools and farmers, Czech NGO People in Need supports the Syrian communities in building resilience. The 'Cash for Work' programme funded by the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) has been directly implemented in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo and Idleb since April 2015. Through this programme, more than 1 930 families have been able to earn a living to provide food and clothing to their families, and pay for rent.

The European Commission funds humanitarian projects both inside Syria and in neighbouring countries. Read more about the Syria crisis bit.ly/1aZCFbH

Let me start by saying that our thoughts this morning will be first of all with the victims  of the attacks both in Ivory Coast and in Ankara, and I am sure we will come back to that at the European Council that will take place later this week on Thursday and Friday.

La réunion de mars des ministres européens des affaires étrangères a essentiellement porté sur la Libye, la Russie, l’Iran et le processus de paix au Moyen-Orient. S'adressant à la presse après avoir présidé la réunion, Mme Mogherini a présenté les principales conclusions.

Languages:

Apologies for the delay, it has been a long Council. We discussed many different and important things. Let me say that it was also a very good Council, extremely constructive and representing very much united positions of the Member States on all the issues we discussed.
