EU-airlift to Ukraine: Europe increases its humanitarian aid

EU-airlift to Ukraine: Europe increases its humanitarian aid

26 January 2015, New York - The European Union is increasing its humanitarian assistance in Ukraine where the latest surge of violence has deepened an already desperate situation. Thousands of people are suffering from the combined impact of the conflict, displacement, extreme poverty and the harsh winter. The European Commission is pledging an additional € 15 million in humanitarian assistance. This will address the basic needs of the most needy in Mariupol and the other areas affected by the conflict, the internally displaced and refugees, and the returnees who are going back home. The funds cover daily necessities, such as shelter, food, water, healthcare, and warm clothing. They bring the EU emergency and early recovery aid, including contributions from the Member States, to € 95 million.
