France triples aid for Horn of Africa

French president Nicolas Sarkozy has decided on 1 August to triple France’s aid in the Horn of Africa.

The crisis centre of the French foreign ministry on 2 August assembled 19 NGOs specialised in humanitarian emergencies, the French Red Cross and several representatives of humanitarian UN agencies, four local community associations and two business foundations to jointly elaborate the projects necessary in the Horn of Africa.

France has already allocated the first 10 million EUR between international organisations (WFP, FAO, HCR, Unicef, ICRC) and NGOs in the countries (Caritas, Care France, Unicef France, Solidarités International, Save the Children). The remaining 20 million EUR announced by French president Nicolas Sarkozy are intended to meet the needs of the United Nations agencies, among others in logistics. The crisis centre of the French foreign ministry held a second solidarity and mobilisation meeting with enterprises on Thursday 4 August.
