The Federal Government is very concerned about the humanitarian situation and the heightening food crisis in southern Africa and Angola.
The Federal Foreign Office has provided an extra one million euro from its humanitarian aid budget to help alleviate the dreadful humanitarian emergency facing some three million people in Angola. This money will finance the distribution of nutritional supplements to malnourished children, as well as basic health projects.
In 2001, the Federal Foreign Office Task Force for Humanitarian Aid funded aid projects around the world to a tune of DM 131.6 million (67.1 million euro), representing an increase of 13% on the year 2000. A total of approximately 470 projects were financed, of which 40 projects were concerned with humanitarian demining.
In the war that broke out again between the government and the military wing of UNITA in December 1998, the government army gained the upper hand. Government troops are currently concentrating on tracking UNITA rebels moving from the central highland through the province of Moxico to the eastern state border.
