Humanitarian aid: EU allocates €18 million in Algeria, Egypt and Libya
February 16, 2022
The EuropeanCommission has announced its humanitarian funding for North Africa for 2022, amounting to €18 million. The funding will support some of the most vulnerable people in Algeria, Egypt and Libya.
Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič, said: “The European Union is committed to supporting people in need no matter where they are. The new funding for humanitarian organisations in Algeria, Egypt and Libya will help vulnerable people affected by conflicts, instability or displacement. As their situation became increasingly difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will help meet their basic needs and ensure they can access healthcare, education and other services.”
EU funded humanitarian aid is channelled impartially to the affected populations only through UN agencies, international agencies and NGOs.
