Vanuatu-EU: €1million for emergency relief efforts

In response to the devastation caused by the tropical cyclone Pam in Vanuatu, the European Union is giving an initial sum of € 1 million (around Kina 3 million) to help the emergency relief efforts.  Two EU experts have been dispatched to assess the humanitarian needs and liaise with partner organisations. Christos Stylianides, European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management said, "It is with great sadness that I learn about the tragic loss of life and scale of destruction caused by cyclone Pam. My thoughts go to the victims and their families. The European Union stands by the people of Vanuatu in this hour of need and offers its immediate assistance". At the time of the disaster, in Japan to participate in the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, he added: "This storm is a stark reminder of the gravity and urgency of the challenge facing the international community. In a world increasingly prone to natural catastrophes, we must work closer together to better prepare for and reduce the impact of such disasters."
