Program

An additional 50 million euros is provided by the Commission for humanitarian aid

publié le 22 May 2020

The 50 million euros humanitarian aid will help to respond to the needs of vulnerable people strongly affected by the Coronavirus crisis, following the precedent international engagement of the EU since the beginning of the crisis.

The new funding will help vulnerable people facing major humanitarian crises, notably in the Sahel and Lake Chad region, the Central African Republic, the Great Lakes region in Africa, Eastern Africa, Syria, Yemen, Palestine and Venezuela, as well as the Rohingya. It will provide access to health services, protective equipment, water and sanitation. It will be channelled through non-governmental organisations, international organisations, United Nations agencies, and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

The additional humanitarian funding comes on top of some €20 billion in development and emergency funding from the Commission and Member States for both short-term and long-term needs around the world as part of a “Team Europe” approach.
