European Commission Donates €1.5 Million To Feed Bhutanese Refugees In Nepal
PDF File Size: 24 KB | Download   
The United Nations World Food Programme has welcomed a €1.5 million donation to its Bhutanese refugee operation in Nepal from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO). At a cost of nearly €18.5 million, WFP aims to provide food aid to over 108,000 Bhutanese refugees over the next two years. Donors have contributed €8.5 million towards the appeal. Under their current status, refugees are restricted from engaging in economic activities outside the camps and from owning land – making humanitarian assistance, like the food aid through the support of the donor community, critical to fulfilling their basic needs. Over the last six years, the humanitarian department of the European Commission has contributed €13.4 million to WFP’s efforts to support the Bhutanese refugees. Since 1992, WFP has been providing essential food aid to the Bhutanese refugees at the request of the Government of Nepal and in close coordination with the UN refugee agency UNHCR.
