More Aussie Funds for DRC

Conflict victims in the Democratic Republic of Congo will benefit from an additional USD2.6 million in humanitarian aid from the Australian government, Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith announced. Of the sum, nearly USD2 million will be allocated to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNICEF and the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The rest will go to Australian non-governmental organizations operating in Africa. (“Australian gov’t donates extra 4 mln Australian dollars to Congo” - Xinhua News Agency, Nov. 13, 2008)
