€15m against the drought effects in Southern Africa

The European Commission is allocating €15 million from the European Development Fund (EDF) for tackling the effects of the persistent drought in the Southern African countries of Angola, Lesotho, Malawi and Zimbabwe. The new funding brings the Commission's humanitarian aid in the region to €33 million for this year.
"We need to provide immediate humanitarian assistance to prevent a critical situation from getting even worse. But we also need to ensure that the people at risk can recover and build up their resilience so that they could cope with future natural disasters," said Kristalina Georgieva, the European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response.
Five million people will benefit from this decision by getting food assistance, emergency nutrition and recovery aid.
