EU provides $470,000 to assist flood victims in Cambodia

Recommended Posts

The European Union is providing €400,000 (US$470.000 or 1.9 billion Cambodian Riel) to provide critical humanitarian assistance to families affected by severe flooding, which has wreaked havoc across large parts of Cambodia since the beginning of October. According to the European Commission, the aid will focus on addressing the urgent needs of the most affected people in the worst hit provinces in the country’s northwest.


“This contribution underlines our solidarity with the people of Cambodia, many of whom have suffered the loss of homes, livelihoods and belongings in the wake of the devastating floods,” said Mr. Olivier Brouant, who oversees the EU’s humanitarian response in the Mekong region. “The EU funding will support our humanitarian partners in delivering life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable, ensuring they have enough means to go through this difficult time.”


The funding, which is part of the EU’s Acute Large Emergency Response Tool (ALERT), will support Save the Children and World Vision in delivering much-needed assistance to those most in need. This includes the distribution of clean water, hygiene kits and other essential relief items while ensuring access to sanitation facilities and good hygiene practices.
