The Commission has decided to grant emergency aid worth 100 000 Ecu to Solomon Islands under Article 137 of the Second Lome Convention. Hurricane "NAMU" recently hit the islands, making 90 000 people homeless and causing 10 000 people to be evacuated in HONIARA. The aid will be used to provide basic necessities, preference being given to purchases on the spot or in neighbouring ACP countries or overseas countries and territories.
