Haiti - Humanitarian : The European Union intensifies its support
Following the devastating hurricane Matthew, the European Commission is intensifying its support and announced an additional 1.5 million euros in emergency humanitarian assistance to the most affected Haitians to cover the immediate basic needs. This funding complements the initial humanitarian aid from the EU, 255 000 Euros https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18841-haiti-humanitarian-first-aid-from-the-european-union.html

Several EU Member States have also offered assistance through the European Civil Protection Mechanism. A team of experts in civil protection of the EU, from Denmark, Finland, France, Romania and Sweden, is deployed in the most affected areas. Their expertise will allow to support the coordination, logistics, water sectors, emergency sanitation and health. Humanitarian experts from the EU and its partners are already on the ground in Haiti.

Christos Stylianides, European Commissioner for humanitarian aid and crisis management, declared "In solidarity with the people of Haiti, the European Union is intensifying emergency assistance at this critical time to save lives. The EU also provides support to health services, drinking water and sanitation facilities. I thank all Member States for their help. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragedy and teams who help them now."
