The Syria Cross‐border Humanitarian Fund (SCHF) has launched a series of Reserve Allocations to respond to those affected by the earthquake in northwest Syria.
The Fund has allocated $50 million for humanitarian response, and it will be distributed in two phases. The allocation in the first phase will be $30 million focusing on lifesaving immediate response.
The allocation in the second phase will be $20 million focusing on lifesaving and life sustaining.
