The United Kingdom and the U.S in response to Syrian crisis
The United States and UK have been the two largest financial aid donor to the humanitarian crisis in Syria.
Since the start of the internal conflict in Syria, the United States as the First largest financial aid provider, has contributed more than $4 billion to help the affected people and the refugees. Every months there is a new additional financial aid package by the U.S Government allocated in response to this crisis.
