Haiti: Commission provides a €3 million initial aid package

The European Commission has moved immediately to help the victims of the earthquake which struck Haiti by adopting a fast-track "primary emergency" decision of €3 million for immediate relief activities. Relief experts are on their way to Haiti to strengthen the EU's response capabilities on the ground. In addition, the European Union's Civil Protection Mechanism has been activated, with its Monitoring and Information Centre coordinating the activities. Relief funds are channelled through the Commission’s Humanitarian Aid department under the responsibility of Commissioner Karel De Gucht. The Commission is already one of the largest humanitarian donors in Haiti providing around €28 million since 2008.
