Joint letter to European Council European Fund for Most Deprived
Eurochild signed a joint letter with Caritas Europa, Eurodiaconia, EAPN, FEANTSA, FEBA, and the Red Cross EU Office, on the Fund for European Aid for the most Deprived to Member States and to President of the European Council Mr. Van Rompuy.
In the letter, we stress the importance that Europe shows solidarity with those hit hardest by the crisis.
We also call on the members of the European Council to:
- Protect the proposed “broad scope” of the new programme;
- Ensure a budget for the new programme that is separate from the ESF;
- Ensure the highest possible amount for the budget for the new programme.
