The Dutch government Tuesday pledged more than €3.5 million (US$4.4 million) to aid agencies for food and other humanitarian aid into Lebanon, which has suffered widespread devastation in fighting between Israeli forces and Hizbullah guerillas. The government said in a statement it has committed €1.5 million (US$1.9 million) to the International Committee of the Red Cross and the same amount to the World Food Program as well as €300,000 (US$380,000) to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The government also gave €250,000 (US$318,000) to the Dutch Red Cross to help fund its operations in Lebanon. Last week, the government also pledged €1 million in aid for Lebanon.
