EU Allots Additional €50 Million to Support People Affected by War in Ukraine


The European Union Commission has announced that the EU is allocating a further €50 million in humanitarian funding to support those affected by the war in Ukraine.

According to the most recent press release issued by the Commission, of the total amount, €45 million will be allocated for humanitarian projects in Ukraine, and the remaining €5 million will be for Moldova.


This brings the European Union’s total humanitarian aid funding in response to the war in Ukraine to €143 million.

The additional funding that the EU Commission has decided to allocate is part of the €1 billion support pledged by the latter at last week’s global event ‘Stand Up For Ukraine’.

“With millions of people on the move or trapped in active war zones, the needs in Ukraine are already massive. Now, we need to be prepared for a further increase in Russia’s ruthless attacks on Ukraine, notably in the east,” Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič said, commenting on the decision.

It has been explained that the new funding will address the most pressing humanitarian needs by providing shelter and protection, medical services, cash assistance, access to safe drinking water and hygiene, and support against gender-based violence.

The Commission emphasized that as heavy fighting and missile strikes continue to destroy civilian infrastructure in Ukraine, humanitarian needs remain extremely high.

Lenarčič noted that through additional funding, it would be able to reach the majority of people who currently need help, especially those in areas hard-to-reach areas.


“With this additional €50 million, the EU continues to rapidly make available humanitarian funding to its partners to further scale up the assistance. It will help people in hard-to-reach areas who are cut off from access to healthcare, water, and electricity, and those, who have been forced to flee and leave everything behind. Ukraine, we are with you,” Lenarčič added.
