European Commission to provide EUR 500 thousand in humanitarian aid  to conflict-affected people

ArmInfo. The European Commission is mobilising EUR 500,000 in humanitarian aid to support  the populations affected by the escalation of hostilities in Nagorno Karabakh, the official website of the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations reports.

"Fleeing the violence, thousands of people are now displaced and in  need of assistance. EU humanitarian aid will help the affected people  cover their basic needs through cash assistance, while providing them  also with shelter and psychosocial support.

This emergency funding comes in addition to the EUR 1.17 million of  humanitarian aid the EU allocated to the Nagorno Karabakh crisis  earlier this year.

Emphasising on the critical necessity of safe humanitarian access,  Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic, stated: "The  escalation of the conflict in Nagorno Karabakh has had serious  repercussions to the civilians. In response, the EU is mobilising  additional ?500 000 in emergency humanitarian aid to support the  people displaced. We are closely monitoring the situation on the  ground and stand ready to offer more assistance. While the EU  welcomes the ceasefire, I strongly urge all parties of the conflict  to ensure unimpeded and immediate access to humanitarian  organisations. We must make sure that humanitarian workers can  provide emergency relief to the people in need."

The EU is in close contact with its humanitarian partners on the  ground and stands ready to address the growing humanitarian needs in  case of further escalation.

We have been supporting humanitarian operations in Armenia and  Azerbaijan with more than EUR 21 million since the large-scale  escalation of the conflict in 2020," the source notes.
