Press release 56/2017 27 March 2017
By decision of Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen, Finland’s humanitarian aid will amount to EUR 61.4 million, of which approximately EUR 20 million will be channelled to the famine-hit countries in the Horn of Africa and to Nigeria and Yemen.
The South Sudan National Ministry of Electricity, Dams, Irrigation and Water Resources with the support of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Finland inaugurated the second phase of “Yei Urban Water and Sanitation Project” to provide clean and sufficient water and sanitation services.
Finland is increasing its humanitarian assistance to South Sudan by 4 million euros. As a result of the crisis in South Sudan, 1.5 million people have had to leave their homes. Almost 400,000 of them have fled to neighbouring countries. There are 3.8 million people in need of assistance, and the risk of famine is great.
“The humanitarian situation is alarming and worsening. If the violence does not stop and a political solution to the crisis is not found, the consequences will be catastrophic,” Development Minister Pekka Haavisto says.
