European Commission - Press release
Brussels, 19 June 2018
The Commission has announced today €68 million in humanitarian assistance for vulnerable communities in Sudan and South Sudan.
The funding comes as millions of people across both countries are in need of assistance, with the conflict in South Sudan triggering an influx of refugees into neighbouring Sudan.
The European Commission is one of the main donors present in Chad, one of the poorest countries in the world that faces several interconnected humanitarian crises. Food insecurity, malnutrition, recurrent epidemics, and thousands of malaria cases plague the country and directly impact the high morbidity and mortality of its children under age five. Violence in neighbouring countries has forced thousands of people to flee to Chad. EU humanitarian aid provides food, helps displaced populations and refugees, and fights epidemics.
