The Canadian government on Thursday announced a $ 50 million humanitarian aid package to meet humanitarian needs in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.
The Canadian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the Syrian crisis continues to affect millions of people throughout Syria and neighboring countries including Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, adding that Canada is committed to working with the international community to promote peace and security in the Middle East.
