EU increases humanitarian aid for South Sudan

The European Commission is increasing its life-saving assistance to South Sudan by over €7 million, bringing its 2014 relief aid for one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises to more than €116 million. The new funds will provide shelter, water, hygiene and protection to the people affected by the conflict. They will also help South Sudanese refugees in Sudan.

In addition, the Commission supports the overall refugee response in the Horn of Africa with around €50 million, which includes aid to South Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya. Humanitarian funding from the EU – its Member States and the European Commission – for South Sudan stands at over €279 million in 2014. The conflict in South Sudan has resulted in the death of tens of thousands and the displacement of two million people.
