The European Commission has committed an additional € 500 000 to continue assisting the most vulnerable refugees and migrants in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This additional funding brings EU humanitarian assistance in the Western Balkans to € 31 million since the start of the refugee crisis in 2015, including € 2 million for Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2018.
As millions of people continue to be in need of humanitarian assistance in Sudan, the European Commission has announced an additional €18 million in emergency aid. This brings total EU humanitarian funding in Sudan for 2018 to €41 million.
