Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What medical and other relief supplies they have been able to dispatch to those in need in Rwanda and what arrangements they have been able to make to ensure their effective delivery.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

We have provided grants totalling £817,935 to Action Aid, CARE and Oxfam. These funds are being used to pre-position relief items and to send a medical team. We are encouraging flexibility in the use of grants to ensure that this humanitarian assistance is speedily delivered.
