Zimbabwe: India Donates $1 Million, 500 Tonnes Rice

Relations between Zimbabwe and India reached a new high yesterday after the New Delhi administration donated $1 million and 500 tonnes of rice to Harare for drought relief purposes. The donation was handed over by India's ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Masakui Rungsung Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda received the donation on behalf of Zimbabwe. Dr Sibanda thanked India for its quick response to an international appeal made by Zimbabwe on food relief following the El Nino-induced drought that affected most parts of the country. "It will be recalled that in February this year, Zimbabwe launched a global appeal for drought relief assistance following the effects of the El Nino induced drought which resulted in massive crop failure in the country," he said. "The Government and people of Zimbabwe are humbled by the speed with which the Government of India responded to the appeal. Allow me on behalf of the Government and people of Zimbabwe, to thank the Government and people of India for their generosity in donating US$1 million towards drought relief efforts in Zimbabwe. Indeed the 2015/16 cropping season witnessed massive crop failure to the extent that the country needs to import 1, 8 million tonnes of grain to see the nation to the next harvest in 2017."
