Which countries received emergency aid?

Emergency aid, also known as humanitarian aid, is about saving lives and reducing human suffering after natural disasters like a flood or an earthquake. It is also about helping people who are in danger because of war or violence. The Netherlands donates money to professional aid organisations who use it to give people in need the help they require as quickly as possible. For example, by providing food and clean drinking water.
