Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland reported on September 2, 2022, that back in July, the country’s government allocated 70 million euros to support Ukraine. Half of these funds are allocated now to improve the food security and health services in Ukraine affected by war.
“With the total funding of 35 million euros that Finland has now granted, we will meet the immediate needs caused by the Russian attack, but we will also be prepared to support Ukraine after the end of the war.”
It is noted that 15 million euros will be directed to humanitarian needs, and 8 million will be transferred to the UN fund, which helps public organizations in Ukraine. Another 5 million will be transferred through the World Food Program, and 2 million – to the United Nations Population Fund to help victims from the south and east of Ukraine. Also, 15 million euros will be used to pay salaries to employees in the education sector.
In addition, Finland will provide 200 Ukrainians who have lost their homes with modular houses and 10 armored containers for temporary accommodation. The latter will be transferred to the frontline regions for rescuers.
