The Scottish Government, in response to the impact of the Tropical Storm Ana, has committed £400,000.00, towards the Emergency Appeal set up by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). This funding will contribute to a package of support to help hundreds of thousands of people in Malawi who have been displaced because of severe flooding as a result of Tropical Storm Ana.
The Scottish Government has also committed to do proactive communications to help draw attention to the ongoing humanitarian situation from Malawi floods.
In addition, a letter has been issued from Minister for Culture, Europe and International Development to the Scottish Parliament’s Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee: International development programme: letter from Minister for Culture, Europe and International Development - gov.scot (www.gov.scot) providing a response to the Committee on its recent question to the Scottish Government on how it will continue to support the growth of small grass-roots initiatives in Scotland on international development. Through this letter, the Minister also highlights to the Committee the Scottish Government response and support to Tropical Storm Ana and the flooding in Malawi’s southern province.
