  • [01] Eritrea: Commission gives €6 million for humanitarian aid

    The European Commission has allocated €6 million in humanitarian aid to help vulnerable people in Eritrea faced with declining livelihoods, climatic hazards and conflict. Eritrea is confronted with huge challenges due to years of chronic drought, desertification, poor infrastructure and continued insecurity along the border with Ethiopia. More than half of the population is threatened by hunger and extreme poverty. Every second woman and every second child is chronically malnourished, according to UNICEF. With its donation, the Commission seeks to address their immediate acute needs for water, food and basic healthcare. Beneficiaries are rural populations throughout the country. The aid also covers livestock support and assistance for internally displaced persons (IDPs). Eritrea further benefits from humanitarian aid the Commission is providing in response to the drought in the Greater Horn of Africa. The Commission's total response to drought in the region since 2005 is €88 million (see IP/06/775).

    [02] Commission allocates €3 million in humanitarian aid for Ethiopia

    The European Commission has allocated €3 million to assist populations with acute humanitarian needs in Ethiopia. Up to 300,000 of the most vulnerable people throughout the country will benefit from the aid. They are affected by climatic hazards, malnutrition, epidemics, conflicts over natural resources and displacement. The Commission's humanitarian assistance covers food, water, health, livestock support, protection and assistance for internally displaced persons (IDPs). Ethiopia further benefits from humanitarian aid the Commission is providing in response to the drought in the Greater Horn of Africa (GHA). Since 2005, the Commission's total response to the GHA drought has been €88 million (see IP/06/775). From EUROPA, the European Commission Server at http://europa.eu.int/
