By February of 1943, the United States had committed $10 billion in aid to nations fighting the Axis Powers. During the Second World War, 44 nations receieved Lend-Lease aid, totaling more than $50 billion. Following the war, Lend-Lease evolved into foreign aid, and eventually the Marshall Plan to help nations rebuild after the war.
