    "Humanitarian aid will not solve the main causes of this crisis. What we need is a political solution that will stabilise the situation in the region", said Prime Minister Beata Szydło at the London conference "Supporting Syria and the Region".



    The Syrian Civil War gave rise to the biggest humanitarian crisis of our times. It has a direct, destabilising impact on the security, political and social situation in the Middle East. The effects of the conflict are apparent in the entire Europe, said the Prime Minister of Poland. Bringing an end to the combat and the suffering of millions of people in the region should be our top priority, stressed Beata Szydło.


    Access to education
    Prime Minister Beata Szydło stressed that the prolonging crisis called for joining forces. The co-ordination of actions must be improved. We need structural interventions: investments in the labour market and education, said the Prime Minister of Poland. She added that it was critical to provide young Syrians, already called "the Lost Generation", with access to education and psychological support.


    Humanitarian aid for Syria
    We must not evade our responsibility. Poland understands it very well, said Prime Minister Beata Szydło. The Prime Minister of Poland informed that due to exceptional circumstances she had decided to implement additional means in the amount of EUR 3 million to support the EU Regional Trust Fund MADAD. Apart from this, Poland will allocate EUR 1.5 million to help the refugees in the neighbouring countries. The means are paid through the UN, the European Union, and as part of bilateral co-operation. In-kind aid, apart from the financial one, will also be provided. In total, Poland plans to allocate in 2016 above EUR 4.5 million to support the victims of the Syrian crisis.
