The EU promises 24 million aid to refugees in Uganda

The European Union will provide € 24 million this year for the most vulnerable population in Uganda, in particular to help the 1.5 million refugees in the country and those who take them in. This support will increase the prevention and control of the coronavirus by one million euros.

Crisis management commissioner Janesz Lenarcic has stressed that European funds will provide humanitarian aid to refugees mainly from South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example by providing clean water, food and educational programs to more than 20,000 minors.

Tools are also provided to raise awareness of the spread of the coronavirus and to strengthen disease prevention and control plans to fight the pandemic.
