The Czech government will send some 225 million crowns (nearly nine million euros) to the EU Trust Fund for Africa. The proposal was made by Interior Minister Lubomír Metnar and approved by the cabinet on Wednesday. The Czech donation should be used in Libya to improve medical services and ease the return of immigrants to the country. The money should be delivered to Libya by the end of February.
The EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa was established at the EU summit in Malta in 2015 to tackle the EU’s biggest ever migration crisis. The Czech Republic has previously donated more than 42 million crowns (around 1.6 million euros) to the fund.
