The European Union (EU) is to release an emergency humanitarian aid of €5 million for those threatened by the post-election crisis Côte d'Ivoire.
In a press statement, European commissioner in charge of international aid, Chritina Georgieva, points out that, “Our duty is to work out emergency plans and as soon as possible give humanitarian aid to the victims.”
Georgieva says the post-electoral troubles Côte d'Ivoire had displaced mass populations of 11 000 people to Ghana, Liberia and Guinea-Conakry.
The funds released will be managed by NGOs, humanitarian partners of EU and operating in Côte d'Ivoire.
