Nova Scotia will donate $50,000 to support the Syrian refugee relief effort, Premier Stephen McNeil announced today, Sept. 4.
“Around the world, there has been an outpouring of grief for the Syrian people and their plight,” said Premier McNeil. “Nova Scotians join in supporting the Syrian people in their time of need and I am proud to offer this support on their behalf.”
The donation will be made to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
“I have encouraged Canada’s premiers to provide financial support and, as well, I hope Nova Scotians who are able will consider donating what they can to the refugee relief effort,” said Premier McNeil.
