As part of the EU’s continued support to people in Gaza, the Commission will provide a further €25 million in humanitarian aid. This quadruples EU humanitarian assistance to over €100m for Gaza this year.
The new assistance will be provided to humanitarian organizations to provide life-saving assistance, in particular focusing on water and sanitation, health, food and other essential items.
Announcing the funding, President Ursula von der Leyen said: “I can announce that we are further increasing humanitarian aid to Gaza by another €25 million. By doing so, the European Union would spend a total of €100 million in humanitarian aid for civilians in Gaza. At the same time, we are working with Israel, Egypt, and the United Nations, to let more convoys into Gaza, including through corridors and pauses for humanitarian needs.”
