Government would like to express profound gratitude to several partners and stakeholders for the assistance rendered towards our beloved brothers and sisters affected by the recent floods in the southern region.

Government is very grateful for the monetary contribution of 150,000 Euro from Pope Francis to be distributed equally among Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The Pope’s contribution expresses his feeling of spiritual closeness and paternal encouragement towards the people and territories affected by the Cyclone Idai which hit the three countries.

Government also thanks the Episcopal Conference of Malawi for directing all Catholic parishes and churches that they dedicate all Sunday collections of the 31st March, 2019 towards flood victims as a sign of solidarity with them.

We further commend the Republic of South Africa, United Republic of Tanzania, the United Nations and several other organisations, both local and international and individuals for the assistance they have given and continue giving to Malawi towards the flood victims. A friend in need is a friend indeed.

We highly value your timely support.

HENRY MUSSA MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY
