Turkey: Extension of EU humanitarian programmes supporting 1.7 million refugees receives green light

Following the Commission's proposal on 3 June, the European Parliament has approved a top-up of EUR 485 million to support refugees in Turkey. The funding now cleared by both the Council and the European Parliament will allow the European Union to extend two flagship humanitarian programmes in Turkey until the end of 2021. These programmes enable over 1.7 million refugees to meet their basic needs and more than 600,000 children to go to school.
