THE European Union is providing 1.8 million EUR ($F4.2 million) to fund humanitarian assistance to communities affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan which caused widespread damage in Fiji and Samoa last December.

The funds will be channeled through the EU's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO).

Chargé d'Affaires of the EU Delegation in Fiji, Adam Janssen said the EU was making an important contribution to the overall international assistance being provided to the people of Fiji and Samoa.

"The EU has always stood by the people of Fiji and Samoa, especially during a period of crisis," Mr Janssen said.

The EU's decision to provide the funding came after a team of ECHO experts visited Fiji and Samoa shortly after the cyclone and identified areas needing immediate assistance.
