EU allocates €83 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine, Moldova

On 20 February, the European Commission announced an initial €83 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine and Moldova in 2024.

“With an estimated 14.6 million people in need of humanitarian aid in Ukraine, this new funding comes at a crucial time,” the statements read.

Of the €83 million humanitarian funding, €75 million is allocated for humanitarian projects in Ukraine to provide emergency aid, including access to basic needs such as shelter, protection services, clean water, education, and healthcare.

“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,” Janez Lenarčič, the EU Commissioner for Crisis Management, said.

Additionally, €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.

According to the UN, more than 14.6 million Ukrainians, 40% of Ukraine’s population, will require humanitarian assistance in 2024.
