DISASTER MANAGEMENT
EU grants Pakistan flood, unrest aid

Brussels (AFP) Sept 27, 2012


The European Commission said Thursday it will release another 15 million euros in aid ($19 million) to Pakistan where tens of thousands of people are affected by flood and unrest.

The money takes the 2012 total for Pakistan to 70 million and will be targeted at help for those affected by ongoing conflict in the north of the country as well as victims of a third successive year of heavy flooding in the south.

"These two largely unreported crises in Pakistan are affecting tens of thousands of vulnerable people," said EU aid commissioner Kristalina Georgieva.

Flash floods have affected hundreds of thousands of people and destroyed as many acres of crops.

Monsoon rains in 2010 killed almost 1,800 people and affected 21 million.
