Armenia: EU to disburse emergency assistance for conflict-affected people

The European Union has announced close to 118 million AMD (€300,000) in emergency aid for people affected by the clashes this September, the deadliest events since the November 2020 ceasefire.

During the upcoming winter, the EU funding will support the most vulnerable people among the 7,600 people who fled the hostilities, the communities hosting them, and vulnerable individuals who stayed in the conflict-affected areas.

EU partner humanitarian organisations in Armenia will deliver hygiene items, shelter repair kits and cash assistance to help people cover their basic needs, such as food, heating costs or rent.

The delivery of emergency support will be closely coordinated with the Armenian authorities and emergency actors.

This funding is made available through the ‘Emergency Toolbox’, an instrument to rapidly respond to emergencies and provide first-line funding for vulnerable people outside the EU, coordinated by the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) of the European Commission.
