EU provides humanitarian support to Macedonia for migrants and asylum seekers

The European Union is providing €90,656 in humanitarian funding to help cope with migratory pressures in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The support will be channelled through the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to help the national Red Cross Society assist some 4,600 people over the next three months. Assistance will primarily go to the Reception Centre for asylum seekers in the capital Skopje and at the main train stations at the southern and northern borders of the country. Aid will cover essential basic needs such as primary health care services, water delivery, food, hygiene kits, blankets, clothing, shoes and baby care products
