EU Commission: humanitarian aid to Ukraine and Moldova, new allocation of €83 million

(Brussels) The European Commission announced an initial €83 million in humanitarian aid to support the people affected by Russia’s war against Ukraine in 2024. “Russia’s targeted attacks on Ukraine’s key energy and civilian infrastructure like hospitals, schools and power grids are seriously hampering people’s access to basic services. With each new shelling, more and more Ukrainians are left homeless and in need of assistance and shelter in freezing conditions. With an estimated 14.6 million people in need of humanitarian aid in Ukraine, this new funding comes at a crucial time”. Of the €83 million humanitarian funding, €75 million is allocated for emergency aid projects, including access to basic needs such as shelter, protection services, clean water, education and healthcare. And €8 million is allocated for humanitarian projects in Moldova providing “targeted assistance to the most vulnerable, including humanitarian cash assistance for basic needs, protection, and health”.
Including the new funding announced today, the Commission has allocated a total of €926 million to humanitarian aid programmes aimed at helping “civilians affected by the war”. Of this funding, €860 million went to Ukraine and €66 million to support refugees who fled to neighbouring Moldova.
