Estonia to Increase South Sudan Aid to 200,000 Euros ({{commentsTotal}})


The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Estonia will provide 200,000 euros in aid to South Sudan.

The financial aid to the country, given annually, was increased by 400 percent this year due to the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan.

“Conflict between the government and rebels has led to the spread of violence and there are already nearly one million internal refugees and hundreds of thousands of people have fled the country,” Paet said. He added that there is a great shortage of food in South Sudan.

The aid will be channeled to the nation, which became independent in 2011, through UN funds and the International Red Cross Committee.

Estonia donated 50,000 euros in 2012 and 2013 to the nation.
