EU provides €83m to support people in Ukraine and in Moldova

The European Commission has announced an initial €83 million in humanitarian aid to support the people affected by Russia’s war against Ukraine in 2024. Of the €83 million humanitarian funding, €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. A sum of €75 million is allocated for humanitarian projects in Ukraine, IPN reports.

“In the past two years, Russia has been waging an unjust and unjustifiable war against Ukraine and its people. While I commend the resilience and iron will of the Ukrainian people, it is evident that the war has left almost 40% of Ukrainians dependent on humanitarian aid. To assist the most vulnerable people affected by this war also in 2024, the EU will provide an initial €75 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine and €8 million to Moldova. And we will continue to closely monitor the evolving needs on the ground so as to react to the most pressing humanitarian challenges. The EU’s commitment to the Ukrainian people is as strong as ever,” said Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič.

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,” the European Commission noted in a press release.
