Ambassador André Discusses Flood Relief

U.S. Government Disaster Assistance

Following a request from the government of Djibouti for humanitarian assistance in response to the severe flooding, on November 27, the government of the United States announced that it will provide through the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance $100,000 to meet the immediate needs of the people of Djibouti. These funds will be managed by UNDP (PNUD Djibouti), in close coordination with the government of Djibouti, to purchase in needed supplies, such as provide blankets, plastic sheets, water reservoirs, and water pumps.

As the world’s largest donor of humanitarian assistance, the United States remains committed to helping the people of Djibouti affected by these recent flooding, and we applaud other donor nations who have demonstrated great generosity in response to this natural disaster.
