Between February 2012 and the end of financial year 2014/15 DFID has provided £315 million to implementing partners delivering humanitarian aid and assistance to the most vulnerable people in Syria. This support has been provided on the basis of where needs were greatest and in line with the humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality. For the protection of beneficiaries and our partners working in areas of active conflict, we do not break down spending allocations in Syria beyond the national level.
