EC provides additional 13 million USD for South Sudan humanitarian aid

The European Commission (EC) has decided to provide nearly 13 million USD to help save the lives of conflict-affected people in South Sudan.

At a press conference in Juba, Joyce Luma, the UN World Food Program (WFP) Representative and Country Director in South Sudan, said the money was channeled through the WFP, adding that the African Union (AU) has provided 32 million USD to humanitarian aid in South Sudan this year. Luma said South Sudan needs international support, which is combined with unimpeded access to the affected people.
