EU : extra €22m humanitarian aid in Mali

The European Commission is increasing its humanitarian aid funding to Mali by €22 million to assist more victims of the conflict. This brings to €115 million its emergency assistance since the start of the crisis in 2012.
The extra funding will provide assistance and access to basic services throughout the country.
"In Mali, the most vulnerable have been hit by a triple crisis over the past year: first a drought that lead to a major food and nutrition crisis in 2012, then political instability and conflict", said Kristalina Georgieva, the European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, after her second visit in the last two months in Mali.
In addition to the Commission's assistance, EU Member States have committed over €42 million of humanitarian aid to the country since the beginning of 2012.
