EU mobilisation towards the victims of Hurricane Dorian

Humanitarian, Human Rights, Co-op & Development,-,

News In response to the dramatic consequences of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, the EU provides an emergency funding of 500,000 euro to help the victims.

After the strongest Atlantic storm on record hit the Bahamas earlier this week, the EU is mobilising an initial €500,000 in immediate emergency funding to assist the victims. The funding will address urgent needs such as shelter, water, hygiene and food.
The European Union's 24/7 Emergency Response Coordination Centre is in close contact with the authorities of the Bahamas to monitor the situation and channel further EU assistance. In addition, the Commission has deployed a Humanitarian Expert to conduct a rapid needs assessment and the EU's emergency Copernicus satellite service is currently providing maps of the area.
