EU: EC approves almost €30m in food aid for Afghanistan
The European Commission (EC) has approved a food aid programme worth €29.4m (US$26.5m) to help with the fight against the food crisis and to improve food security in Afghanistan. An important element of EU support for the rebuilding of Afghanistan is the main aim of the programme to raise the nutrition level of Afghans and help them obtain a balanced diet. The programme also supports Afghan efforts to improve its own food production. The amount includes the supply of seeds, foodstuffs, tools and fertilisers. The funds for this programme come from the Food Aid/Security budget line which is managed under the authority of Commissioners Poul Nielson and Christopher Patten.
