Managed by ECHO, the Humanitarian Aid Office of the European Commission, the aid will enable non-governmental agencies to carry out projects until the end of this year. The main purposes of this decision are to continue providing food distribution to about 20,000 vulnerable people and assist refugees with psycho-social relief and educational care. Children will be a priority for help. The aid will also focus on vocational training and capacity building projects, which includes strengthening social institutions such as centres for social welfare and local Non Governmental Organisations. The target group includes Serbs from Kosovo and members of the Roma community. The implementing partners are InterSOS, Cooperazione e Sviluppo (CESVI) and Centro Regionale di Intervento per la Cooperazione (CRIC, Italy). Previous Commission decisions to date for victims of the Kosovo crisis amount to 378 million. (for more information: M. Curtis tel. 296 5932 fax: 296 3067)
