To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what financial resources she has allocated to the refugee camps on the border between Guinea and Liberia. [108038]

Within the last month I have approved around £4 million for humanitarian assistance in the Mano River Union countries. This was in response to the UN Consolidated Appeals for countries of the region. Within this sum there is a strong emphasis on assistance to both refugees and internally displaced people located in the border areas between Guinea and Liberia. The funds have been channelled mainly through UN agencies and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
