DISASTER MANAGEMENT
EU grants Haiti fresh aid on quake anniversary

Brussels (AFP) Jan 11, 2013


The European Union said Friday it is giving Haiti another 30.5 million euros ($40.7 million) in aid, three years after the Caribbean country was devastated by a massive earthquake.

The quake killed around a quarter-of-a-million people with hundreds of thousands still living rough and exposed to a crime wave, a cholera outbreak and hurricanes.

"The EU remains committed to helping Haitians in need and the country with its reconstruction," said Kristalina Georgieva, the EU's Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response.

"We need to continue with our efforts to give Haiti a chance to rebuild itself as a country much stronger than before the earthquake," she added ahead of a visit to Haiti this weekend.

Haiti is the largest beneficiary of the European Commission's humanitarian aid in Latin America and the Caribbean, with more than 260 million Euro provided since 1995.
