UK aid is making a real difference in Syria, providing life-saving and life-changing support to millions of people displaced inside Syria, and millions more who have taken refuge in neighbouring countries.

Since 2012, UK aid supplied over 26 million food rations that feed a person for a month, and 10.3 million medical consultations that can mean the difference between life and death.
