Kuwait pledges $300 million in Syria aid at donor meeting

Jan. 30, 2013 10:10 A.M. (Updated: March 6, 2013 10:17 A.M.)
KUWAIT (Reuters) -- Kuwait's emir pledged on Wednesday to give $300 million to help fund humanitarian efforts for millions of Syrians affected by nearly two years of conflict.

Announcing the funding at an aid donor conference, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah added that "horrifying reports" of violence had raised questions over the future of Syria and aid efforts had to be redoubled.

Wednesday's conference will seek pledges of $1 billion of aid for Syria's neighbors, who are sheltering 700,000 registered refugees, and another $500 million to bankroll humanitarian work for 4 million Syrians inside their country.
