On March 20, President Xi Jinping sent a condolence letter to President Mnangagwa where he expressed his sincere sympathy to the lives lost and reiterated that China will provide assistance within its capacity in line with the needs of Zimbabwe.

… The Chinese medical team in Zimbabwe will visit the affected areas and bring medical supplies and carry out free treatment to the local people.

We hope these efforts will help the Zimbabwean people gain confidence and strength in the fight against the disaster and we believe that under the leadership of President Mnangagwa, the Zimbabwean people will be able to recover from this disaster and rebuild their home places soon.
