SEOUL (Yonhap) — South Korea will provide $12 million worth of aid to help resolve the humanitarian crisis in Syria, Seoul officials said Friday.

The decision was made at an international donors’ conference in London that Lee Suk-joon, a lead officer for government policy coordination at the prime minister’s office, is to attend. He left for the meeting on Wednesday.

Seoul’s pledge came as Syria has been affected by a civil war for the past five years, prompting a humanitarian crisis for millions of people displaced from their homes.

The South Korean government has donated a total of $23.45 million for Syria between 2012 and 2015, according to the office.

Participating countries at the donor conference plan to provide an accumulative $9 billion this year.

South Korea is the first country in the world that has transformed into an aid donor from a recipient nation.
