EU helps to provide humanitarian assistance for conflict-affected people in Armenia


The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has received a €1.3 million contribution from the European Union to provide cash assistance across Armenia for people affected by the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

This assistance will complement existing national efforts undertaken by the Government of Armenia and its partners to support people affected by the conflict and the COVID-19 pandemic.

 “Many displaced people find themselves in a difficult situation, which is further exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. Through cash assistance, our partner WFP helps the most vulnerable pay for the things they need most urgently, including food, said Janez Lenarčič, European Commissioner for Crisis Management.

The WFP’s recent Food Security Assessment concluded that many people across the country are in need of humanitarian assistance.
