''HORN OF AFRICA DROUGHT COVERING KENYA, ETHIOPIA, SOMALIA AND DJIBOUTI''
The European Union is one of the world's largest humanitarian donors, having provided to date more than €705 million to the area. This represents nearly one third of the total assistance to the Horn of Africa in 2011. The European Commission alone has so far allocated nearly €160 million in humanitarian aid for the Horn of Africa in 2011 and is mobilising an additional €24 million to assist vulnerable people threatened by famine and the effects of drought in the Horn of Africa. Of this amount, more than 70% will be committed to respond to the drought crisis.
