Super Typhoon HaiyanDie Europese Kommissie verhoog sy noodhulp aan die Filippyne ná die massiewe vernietiging wat deur tifoon Haiyan veroorsaak is. Tydens haar besoek aan die land, Internasionale samewerking, humanitêre hulp en Crisis Response Kommissaris Kristalina Georgieva het €7 miljoen meer in humanitêre hulp aangekondig.

“We have all seen the tragic devastation inflicted by this typhoon and in Tacloban today I am personally delivering a message of European solidarity. We are standing by all the victims with immediate, large-scale assistance,” Commissioner Georgieva said.

Today’s decision brings to €20 million the Commission’s assistance to the Philippines in the aftermath of Haiyan (including emergency humanitarian aid of €3million and €10 million of reconstruction assistance pledged by Development Commissioner Andris Piebalgs). Member states have also contributed around €25 million in financial aid in addition to generous in-kind support.

“The priorities now are restoring access to devastated parts of the Philippines and the urgent delivery of life-saving assistance. It is also imperative that we coordinate relief efforts so that everyone who needs help will receive it,” added the Commissioner. She is travelling to Manila, Cebu and Tacloban to meet the national authorities, inspect the devastation and receive in-depth reports from the Commission’s experts who have been deployed on the ground since the early hours of the disaster.

The Commission’s humanitarian assistance is channelled through organisations operating in the affected areas, including the World Food Programme, the International Federation of the Red Cross, OCHA and Telecoms Sans Frontières. The new batch of EU aid will address the most acute needs such as food assistance, clean water, emergency shelter, health services and communication. EU funds also support coordination, transport and logistics, which is of crucial importance to delivering aid to survivors.

Die Kommissie is ook besig om te verseker dat gekoördineerde lewering van hulp in die Filippyne van EU-lidstate instroom. Vir daardie doel is die EU-burgerbeskermingsmeganisme geaktiveer.

Tot op hede het sestien16 lidlande hulp gestuur. Noorweë het ook hulp bygedra deur die Europese Burgerlike Beskermingsmeganisme. Europese soek-en-reddingspanne, dokters en ander dringend benodigde kundiges word na die land ontplooi, asook veldhospitale, watersuiweringseenhede en ander toerusting.

agtergrond

The tropical cyclone Haiyan (locally named Yolanda), one of the strongest ever recorded, hit the Philippines on 7 and 8 November causing wide-spread damage. The full extent of destruction is still being accessed. The UN estimates that 11.3 million people – or over 10% of the Philippine population – are affected. The death toll continues to rise.

Die Filippyne is een van die lande met die meeste rampe ter wêreld. In Oktober is die Filippyne deur 'n aardbewing van 7.2 getref, wat die huise en lewensbestaan ​​van ongeveer 350,000 2013 mense vernietig het. In 2.5 alleen het die Europese Unie aansienlike humanitêre hulp aan die argipel verleen: €10 miljoen is pas beskikbaar gestel vir die reaksie op die aardbewing in Bohol; vir Tifoon Bopha (Pablo) is altesaam €2012 miljoen vrygestel om die gemeenskappe te help herbou wat verwoes is deur die sikloon wat Suidoos-Mindanao in Desember 200 getref het; ná oorstromings wat deur tifoon Trami (Maring) in Augustus veroorsaak is, het ECHO €000 300 toegewy om diegene wat geraak word te help, en €000 XNUMX is vroeg in Oktober bewillig om diegene wat deur die konflik in Zamboanga ontheem is, by te staan.
