Ukraine: EU boosts humanitarian aid with additional EUR 50 million


As heavy fighting and missile strikes continue to destroy critical civilian infrastructure, humanitarian needs in Ukraine remain extremely high. Despite access and security constraints, EU humanitarian partners are providing assistance to vulnerable people in different regions of Ukraine.

The EU is allocating a further EUR 50 million in humanitarian funding to support the people affected by Russia’s war on Ukraine, including EUR 45 million for humanitarian projects in Ukraine and EUR 5 million for Moldova. This brings the EU’s total humanitarian aid funding in response to the war to EUR 143 million. This funding is part of the €1 billion support package pledged by the European Commission at last week’s global pledging event ‘Stand Up For Ukraine’.

This new funding will address the most pressing humanitarian needs by providing emergency medical services, access to safe drinking water and hygiene, shelter and protection, cash assistance, and support against gender-based violence.
