EU aid has delivered amazing, lifesaving results for millions of people in the poorest countries in the world. Between 2004-9 EU Aid helped:
Vaccinate 5.5 million children against the deadly disease measles
Send 9 million more children to school
Connect 31 million people to clean water
About the campaign
