EU pledges €532m for Haiti reconstruction

The European Union (EU) has committed 532 million Euros to aid the reconstruction of Haiti after its earthquake in 2010. Between the 10th and 11th European Development Funds (EDF), 112 million Euros and 420 million were donated to Haiti. The funds will be put toward modernization efforts in Haiti, including finance, state reform, security operations and education, specifically free primary education for children.
This funding from the EU was discussed with European Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs on Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamotheʼs recent visit to Europe over the past weekend. The allocation of the 112 million Euros will take effect after the United Nations General Assembly, which meets in the United States later in September.
