U.S. Continuing To Assist In Mental Health Support For Syrians

Jack Myer, Syria regional disaster assistance response team leader in the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance, writes in USAID’s “IMPACTblog” about the ongoing conflict in Syria and how “9.3 million people now find themselves in need of humanitarian assistance,” particularly women and children. “The U.S. will continue to provide mental health support to people affected by the Syria crisis as they cope with the daily challenges of war — all part of the $1.3 billion in humanitarian assistance for the crisis,” he states (1/6).
