€89.5 Million in Humanitarian Assistance to Somalia and Djibouti


Somalia and Djibouti have received €89.5 million in humanitarian assistance from the European Union, as millions are grappling with the consequences of prolonged extreme weather conditions.

Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides said, “The devastating effects of two years of drought and the recent intense flooding are taking their toll on the livelihood of millions of people in Somalia. Our aid will target the most vulnerable and provide life-saving support to those affected by climatic shocks and internal conflict.”

Out of the aid package, €89 million in emergency assistance will be channelled in Somalia to reach communities displaced by severe drought, focussing on the prevention and treatment of malnutrition, water supply and livestock protection, as well as health measures against epidemics.

A further €500,000 is going to Djibouti to support refugees in the country (mostly fleeing the conflict in Yemen, but also from Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea) by providing water, sanitation and protection to the communities living in the Ali Addeh, Hol Hol and Markazi refugee camps.
