The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has announced today it will cut development cooperation support for Finn Church Aid by almost 4.3 million euros, 43 % from the 2015 level. It means that over 300,000 people will be left without aid.
Cuts on humanitarian aid are yet to come. If they are done to the same extend and the cuts on development cooperation, a further 100,000 people struggling in humanitarian crises will be left without support. FCA estimates that in the worst case, the combined cuts might rise to 6-8 million euros.
