EU Considers More Haiti Aid

The European Commission is planning to send an additional 90 million euros (USD123 million) to Haiti, to be drawn from the European Union’s emergency reserve budget. The funds will be used to provide emergency shelters, food, medical supplies and health care services to homeless earthquake victims. The money, subject to approval by the bloc’s budget authority, would bring the EU’s total Haiti emergency response to 609 million euros.
