EU releases €15 million in humanitarian aid for people in Myanmar and refugees on the country's borders

As the escalation of conflict in Myanmar continues to increase humanitarian needs, the EU has released an additional €15 million to help people affected in the country, as well as refugees who have fled to neighboring states. This includes Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

This additional allocation will help provide life-saving assistance to people who have had to flee their homes due to conflict, providing them with access to food, shelter, clean water, and emergency healthcare.

The additional funds will also go towards helping people protect themselves in the dangerous context, for example by minimizing their exposure to the risks of landmines.

The EU has increased its total allocation for the Myanmar crisis each year since the 2021 coup, providing €36 million in 2024 so far.
