Germany contributed 17 million Euros to White Helmets – Foreign Office


The official Twitter account of Germany’s Foreign Office tweeted on Friday that their nation had provided at least 17 million Euros to the Syrian Civil Defense (var. White Helmets) in Syria.

“Following his meeting with  Director Raed al-Saleh, Foreign Minister  said that “the White Helmets are a powerful symbol of humanity and hope,” the account tweeted yesterday.

“Germany has provided funding of 17 million euros to the ’ work since 2016 and will continue to do its utmost to support the organisation,” they would add.

Germany has remained one of the largest contributors to the Syrian Civil Defense, despite the U.S.’ decision to freeze their Syria funding in March.
