EU- South Sudan: €50 million in aid

Christos Stylianides, EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management announced that the Commission is requesting new vital support in the amount of €50 million from the European Union for the victims of this humanitarian crisis during his recent visit to South Sudan. "I have witnessed first-hand the immense suffering of the people of South Sudan. People who have been forced to leave their homes and desperately look for a safe place to live. People who lack the opportunity to earn a living. They have suffered enough!" said Commissioner Stylianides. The new aid package, once approved by the budgetary authorities, will bring the Commission's humanitarian aid for South Sudan and the neighbouring countries affected by the crisis to €120.5 million for 2015. It will provide immediate life-saving assistance (shelter, water, hygiene and protection) for the most vulnerable South Sudanese inside and outside of their country.
