Scottish Govt Announces Aid To Support Cyclone Idai victims

Scotland’s International Development Minister Ben Macpherson announced that the Scottish Government would provide £150,000 for Cyclone Idai victims.

This follows an appeal launched by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) on Thursday to help those affected raised £8 million within its first 24 hours. Said, Macpherson:

Our thoughts are with all of those affected by the terrible consequences of Cyclone Idai.

As an outward-looking, compassionate country it is right that we do what we can to support the international response to this humanitarian emergency.

This funding will help aid agencies in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe to deliver life-saving support to local families and communities in desperate need, as will all public donations to the DEC Scotland appeal.
