Prague, June 26 (CTK) – The Czech Republic will provide 4.1 million crowns for humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees in Lebanon, the Foreign Ministry said Friday after minister Lubomir Zaoralek approved the release of the money.
The aid will go to two education and health care projects.
“In cooperation with a local non-profit partner, the equipping of 22 public schools in the city and region of Tripoli will be completed. The schools secure the education of Syrian children in shifts,” the ministry’s press release said.
The money set aside for health care will be spent on the purchase of equipment for a public hospital in which Syrian refugees can be treated for free, the release said.
This year, the Czech Republic has provided 7.5 million crowns for aid to the internally displaced inhabitants of Syria and to Syrian refugees in Jordan.
