Vienna, 5 August 2011 – In view of the ongoing dramatic situation in the Horn of Africa Austria will step up its aid from 850,000 euros to 1.5 million euros: “The humanitarian catastrophe in the Horn of Africa calls for Austria’s solidarity with the crisis region. With its first emergency aid package in the amount of 850,000 euros Austria provided a swift response, but further steps are necessary. Austria will therefore almost double its aid, contributing a total of 1.5 million euros to international aid efforts,” said Foreign Minister and Vice-Chancellor Michael Spindelegger.
