The EU is allocating a further €50 million in humanitarian funding to support the people affected by Russia’s war on Ukraine, including €45 million for humanitarian projects in Ukraine and €5 million for Moldova.
This brings the EU’s total humanitarian aid funding in response to the war to €143 million. The allocated funding is a part of the €1 billion support package pledged by the European Commission at the global pledging event ‘Stand Up For Ukraine’ that took place on 9 April.
This new funding will address the most pressing humanitarian needs by providing emergency medical services, access to safe drinking water and hygiene, shelter and protection, cash assistance, and support against gender-based violence.
According to European Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič, this additional €50 million will help people in hard-to-reach areas who are cut off from access to healthcare, water and electricity, and those who have been forced to flee the country.
“With millions of people on the move or trapped in active war zones, the needs in Ukraine are already massive. Now, we need to be prepared for a further increase in Russia’s ruthless attacks on Ukraine, notably in the east,” said Lenarčič.
