The European Commission and its humanitarian partners: collaboration that saves lives

October 17, 2011

The European Commission wants to ensure that every euro it spends on humanitarian assistance delivers maximum value to the people who need our assistance. This is an obligation toward those we help, but also toward our taxpayers whose solidarity is translated into humanitarian assistance with the help of the Commission’s partners.

IRC is the leading agency in a joint effort with Action Contre la Faim (ACF) for implementing an emergency nutrition intervention in the two areas. The project is providing aid to 11,770 children under the age of five suffering from acute malnutrition and to 1900 pregnant and breast-feeding women.
