  The Commission has approved, under Article 203 of the Lomé
  Convention, the following emergency aid allocations :
  Following the sharp reduction in output from the BOALI
  hydroelectric power station as a result of the drought,
  production by the ENERGA fossil fuel plant in Bangui has had to
  be stepped up.  The aid, which represents the Commission's
  response to an appeal by the Central African Government, is being
  provided in order to finance the extra fuel consumption by the
  Energa plant.
  VANUATU  -  100 000 ECU
  Vanuatu was hit on 10 and 11 January by cyclone "Anne", which
  caused major damage and left 3 200 people without food, clothing
  or shelter.
  The aid will be used for the local purchasing of rice and
  preserved meat and fish, which will be distributed to the
  stricken population.
  UGANDA  -  540 000 ECU
  Drought and the ongoing conflict in the North and North-East of
  the country have caused an exodus from those areas of thousands
  of people, who are now in serious need of food and medical care.
  The aid, to be administered by the Ugandan Red Cross, Action
  Internationale contre la Faim (AICF) and Médecins sans Frontières
  (Netherlands), will be used to finance the purchase and despatch
  of food, medicines and medical equipment.
