Brussels, 1 August 2014
The European Commission is giving an additional €10 million for Somalia in response to the increasing humanitarian needs there. This will help respond to the serious food and nutrition crisis that Somalis are currently facing, and will provide basic healthcare and nutrition services, access to food, water, sanitation, as well as shelter and household items for the most vulnerable people.
The new funding brings to €49 million the Commission’s 2014 humanitarian aid contribution for Somalia. It will target the people in greatest need and will be channelled through the European Commission's humanitarian partners, including UN agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations.
