As many continue to suffer from the ongoing conflict in Libya, the European Commission has announced today €2 million in additional humanitarian aid to help those most in need. The assistance will cover emergency healthcare services, food, livelihood support and protection services.
The European Commission is mobilising an additional €10 million in humanitarian assistance for the many people still dealing with the consequences of the 2 unprecedented tropical cyclones that hit Mozambique in 2019.
Following the extensive damage caused by the 2 powerful earthquakes that struck Albania on 21 September 2019 and the heavy rains that hit the same area soon after, the Albanian authorities called for international assistance via the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism. Through the European Union’s coordination, first aid supplies and relief items, such as emergency tents, power generators and food aid kits are being provided to the affected areas.
