During his address to the United Nations General Assembly, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that the United States will provide nearly $340 million in additional humanitarian aid to help meet the needs of the war-ravaged Syrian people, bringing the U.S. contribution to this effort to over $1.3 billion dollars. The aid is divided between Syrians inside Syria, and those who have fled to neighboring countries, said Nancy Lindborg, Assistant Administrator for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance at the U.S. Agency for International Development.
