Brussels, 14/03/2015

In its immediate response to the devastation caused by the tropical cyclone Pam in Vanuatu, the European Commission is making available an initial €1 million to help in the emergency relief efforts. The European Commission is also sending two experts to assess the humanitarian needs and liaise with partner organisations operating on the ground.


The EU-funding will contribute towards the most urgent needs in Vanuatu, with particular emphasis on the most vulnerable victims. The assistance will be implemented through humanitarian partner organisations working on the ground and cover needs such as shelter, clean water and medicine.
