The Commission's funds will be used to cover their urgent needs, including food, emergency shelter, medical assistance, hygiene kits, water and sanitation, basic household tools as well as the establishment of emergency telecommunications facilities and psycho-social counselling. The assistance is channelled through the Commission's Humanitarian Aid department, ECHO, under the responsibility of Commissioner Louis Michel.
