The EU supports disaster-stricken Spain and Italy
(22 November 2011)
The European Commission is proposing to allocate EUR 21 million to Spain in the wake of the earthquake which hit the town of Lorca last May, and EUR 16.9 million to the Italian region of Veneto to clear up the aftermath of the torrential rain in 2010. This aid being provided from the European Union’s Solidarity Fund will go towards reimbursing the cost of the emergency measures carried out, such as the rescue operations, cleaning up the disaster-stricken areas and restoring the basic infrastructure.
