It's about mothers, children and grandparents who have been experiencing war for more than ten years, sometimes had to flee several times and are now mourning their relatives under the rubble, said Baerbock. "They now lack even the bare essentials to survive: a roof over their heads, clean drinking water, something to eat and medicine. That's why we're increasing our aid for the region again by over 22 million euros."
According to the newspaper, Germany's earthquake aid for Syria has increased to almost 50 million euros. The money will go to organizations already active in the region, such as Welthungerhilfe, Malteser, Caritas and Save the Children, the Foreign Minister told the "Bild am Sonntag".
The strong earthquake occurred almost two weeks ago in the border area between Turkey and Syria. The number of confirmed fatalities recently rose to more than 41,000.
