Ireland to donate extra €1m Africa aid

Published on 15 July 2011

The latest funding brings to €5.6m the total Irish support since the start of 2011 for victims of the humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa. €750,000 will fund the World Food Programme's efforts across the region to dramatically increase the distribution of highly-nutritious foodstuffs to small children and pregnant women, who are particularly vulnerable.
