EU: €20m humanitarian response in Mali

The European Commission will be increasing its humanitarian response to the crisis in Mali by €20 million. The additional funding will bring the EU's humanitarian support to Mali to a total of €101 million for 2012.
With the new funding the Commission aims to boost the relief effort in all parts of Mali, particularly in the North, as well as in neighbouring countries to which Malian refugees have fled as a result of the conflict.
The conflict in Mali has forced 400,000 people to flee their homes while 4.6 million Malians are affected by the ongoing food crisis. Those Malians in need of humanitarian assistance include 200,000 forced from their homes inside northern Mali and another 200,000 who are now refugees in neighbouring countries.
