The European Commission has raised its humanitarian support to Sri Lanka by another €10 million, the EU said. This will finance further assistance for internally displaced Sri Lankans, helping them to return to their homes, and ensuring that basic services are in place for the returnees.

These additional resources will also bring humanitarian aid to vulnerable Sri Lankan refugees in India, and will reach the most affected victims of the floods that ravaged Sri Lanka's eastern province earlier this year.

Kristalina Georgieva, Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response said: "Europe will continue its impartial support to the vulnerable communities in Sri Lanka, and will work to build the bridge between relief assistance and long-term development in the country".

Many Sri Lankans who had been internally displaced by violence have returned home since the conflict ended in May 2009. Still, some 75,000 refugees continue to lead a difficult life in camps in Tamil Nadu, India.

    Thanks. We don't want your money.

    you don,t want their money because YOU don,t NEED their money - but there are very many families who lost everything due to war or floods - please don,t speak for them.

    this fund can be end up in the hands of accussed war criminals. It is the duty of the EU to ensure that money is reached the people whom it intends to help.
