The European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid department (DG ECHO) was set up in 1992 as part of a European solidarity drive. The humanitarian aid instrument is a fund dedicated to providing assistance and relief to populations in distress, whatever their origin, nationality or religion. Humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence are the guiding principles of the programme. Without distinction, the European Union can provide aid anywhere in the world in cases of emergencies, wars, natural disasters or epidemics. In 2022, to cover urgent needs in the context of the war in Ukraine, the European Union is increasing the amount of aid by 20% to 2.6 billion.
