Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived
The European Commission (DG Employment) has proposed to set up a European Aid Fund to help the most deprived persons in the EU.
A successor to the Food Aid to the Most Deprived, this new Fund would support member state schemes not only by providing food aid to the most deprived people, but also clothing and other essential goods to homeless people and materially-deprived children (such as shoes, soap and shampoo).
The proposal is yet to be approved by the European Parliament and the European Union’s Council of Ministers.
