Lord Sheikh:

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assistance they have given to victims of the conflict in the Ivory Coast.

Baroness Verma: The Department for International Development’s (DfID’s) humanitarian partners including UN agencies and non-government organisations (NGOs) are responding to the needs of an estimated 20,000 internally placed people in Ivory Coast and 30,000 Ivorian refugees in Liberia. DfID is closely monitoring the situation in Ivory Coast to check that the needs of affected people are being met as effectively and efficiently as possible through these agencies.
