It is with great sadness that the Government of Mauritius has taken note of the situation prevailing in the Republic of Mozambique and Republic of Zimbabwe following the passage of cyclone Idai.
According to the authorities, the cyclone has affected more than 1.5 million people, with a death toll of more than 1,000.
Idai caused flooding over vast stretches of land and has also swept away houses, buildings and dams.
The Government of Mauritius expresses its solidarity with the people of Mozambique and Zimbabwe. In line with our practice to provide financial support to countries affected by natural disasters, the Government of Mauritius will donate USD 200,000 and USD 100,000 to the Republic of Mozambique and the Republic of Zimbabwe respectively.
